I popped in here to grab some refreshment and hopefully watch the football. The service was prompt and there was room to move - it was very relaxing.

When you step inside this little pub, you'll see several local folks enjoying a pint and watching some football or horse racing on TV. Sit down and join them and you'll feel like one of the gang.
