I go to Monday's quiz night (also one on Thursdays). Great atmosphere in a traditional pub frequented by the locals. Good range of drinks with guest ales and a speciality gin menu. Bar snacks available.

I was here with my neighbours on a Thursday night for the quiz and bingo.I think this pub was a clean, warm and friendly place with reasonably priced drinks.We enjoyed ourselves that much that we will be going to the Thursday quiz night every week.
