Great pub in stunning old building close to the racecourse. Good choice of beers and whilst we didn't eat, the food looked very good.

Amazing location, nice relaxing place with no tv and no music. Choice of drinks is very good and the ale is kept very well. Food is amazing just the portions are on the large side. Must try is there own stout mustard.

A pub inside a very old house. A very good selection of real ales starting at £3.10 per pint. Staff warm and friendly. Worth a visit if you like real ale.
