Good selection of ales and ciders. Friendly pub and decent staff. More of a traditional pub with a dart board. Clientele of all ages.

It's midweek when many places are quiet but here at Blackjack's tap, the place is nicely busy. A group playing darts; several tables of foursomes. Background music. Oh, and great beer at reasonable prices!

Brewery tap for the well-renowned local brewers, Blackjack. Traditional pub interior with pub games too. Prices are very reasonable and the range of beers on offer is superb. Staff are very friendly and happy to offer advice and tasters.

Went here with friends for some drinks. Good atmosphere inside and very popular. Difficult to find seats on busy evenings. Drinks seemed expensive, however, that is commonplace for the area. Amazing selection of beers.
