This is just a perfect old style pub / bags of atmosphere, quirky decor, nice beer (several Kelham Island Brewery ales from Sheffield) and a friendly, delightful and energetic couple running it. There’s a nice little terrace outside to catch a bit of setting sun,...More

Visited for midweek dinner with friends. A great atmosphere, quirky décor, friendly hosts serving great food. Live music on Saturdays looks great.

What a gem - small but full of character. The food is excellent; home cooked and delicious. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We went several times and were never disappointed. Music on Saturday evenings - what more could you ask for?More
