Unpretentious, friendly and great beer at reasonable prices. This is a nice 'proper' pub - and the beer is well-kept. A special word for the great barmaid, who has a fabulous choice of music! Really friendly - an asset to the place!

£11 for 2 pint, that's expensive even for London... bar man was more interested in his 2 female mates sitting at the bar rather than being a real bar man. Did not even finish our drinks.

Nice pub if you can get a seat. Small and a good selection of beers. Great for a few beers not good for large groups.

On first walking in we thought what is that smell? Turned out to be cheesy chips which isn't so bad when you know the orgin of the whiff. A choice of ales and craft beers. Worth a stop off ...
