Traditional pub with microbrewery on site, brewing Pilot Gold, Wrecker, Black Storm, SUP IPA, Revolver, Dwbl Trwbl and Furr Lager. There are usually up to three of our beers available, along with three guest beers and Bass on draught. In addition we have three keg beers, lager, Guiness, keg and cask cider. We serve a selection of hot drinks all year. We don't do food and do not accept credit/debit cards. Well behaved children (until 9pm) and dogs are very welcome. Conversation is king, there is no juke box, music, fruit machines or TV (apart from eg rugby occasionally). A selection of traditional pub games and books of local interest are available. Our busiest times are early evening especially on a Friday and Saturday, so be warned you may struggle to get to the bar 😉

We visited here on the basis of a recommendation. Just had a drink but loved the atmosphere and the range of unusual ales. Next time we'll stay longer and have lunch.
