Took a bit of finding, but this is a super little pub. But of a tight squeeze if its busy. The beer, all local brews were tasty and varied. Snack food would be good to keep one longer....helpful bar staff

A really well looked after historic building with lots of charm and always a friendly atmosphere. The landlord sources local ales which are changed very regularly and are always fresh and clean - none of your stale ale and dirty pipes here! Great pub.
