Popped in for a glass of wine. No customers, No choice of wine, No question of what size we would like, 250ml glasses automatically poured.No atmosphere. Such a shame as the building is wonderful and if managed properly could be a gold mine.

This pub is set away from the busy high street and isn't usually very busy. It has a good choice of tap and bottled beers and a nice beer garden. It's nice to hangout with friends and I would recommend it.
