This is an excellent, friendly pub. There is a good choice of real ales, as well as the usual wines and spirits that you would expect to find in a primarily real-ale pub.
Food is available, but the menus choice is limited. It sells the sort of food you would expect in a real ale pub - something to eat with your pint. I call it 'blotting paper', but not in any derogatory sense.
They also do a very good coffee - especially welcome if you have had a pint or two too many.
It is convenient for the station, so good for a pint while you're waiting for a train.
My only grouse - children are welcome, and they are not always under their parents' control. One knocked my drink over once, and the parents weren't bothered.
