Beer choice excellent. Staff not exactly brimming over with customer friendliness. Burgers poor but chips good. Overpriced food. Return for a beer but not food.

Friendly pub with great service and really delicious sandwiches (recommend the roast beef). They have a vast beer selection, which the bartender helped us navigate. I really enjoyed our lunch there and hope to go back soon.

Not a bad place - a reasonable selection of beers and they serve what looks like a good selection of food (not tried). Friendly welcome.
