Went for a quick drink after work, waited ages to be served, obviously the barman was to busy to serve. Why is it pubs let all their staff use their phones behind the bar. Won't be returning.

Now this was a pub worth visiting. Lots of assorted ales. Drank the gorgeous Black Sabbath ale here. We were too late for lunch and too early for the teatime menu but the atmosphere and drink was excellent. Lots of history in this area around...More

One thing that cannot be critised is the range of beers on offer, the choice is very good however what needs to be addressed is the staffs attitude towards customers and good old fashioned laziness. On arrival we were made to feel unwelcome, it appeared...More
