“Stay away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

This pub looks really inviting from the outside, especially on a windy rainy night. My wife and I entered the front door into a dingy hallway which divided into two rooms. The dining room was gloomy and uninviting with a pool table amongst the dining tables. There were no diners at 8pm on a Saturday, which in itself tells a story. In the other room was a group of "locals" we were greeted with someone shouting loudly across the room " it's ****ing ****ing down out there. We turned around and left.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The landlady (if you can call her a lady) is rude, loud, cannot say thankyou, and should learn some manners. The food was good but basic. The place was dirty, and the toilets were disgusting. We decided against staying the night, and instead booked in at The Masons Arms, just over the bridge. What a difference!
