It is worth mentioning right from the start, that this free house pub has been under new management since July 2016.

The choice of real ales was excellent, some named by the brewers just for this pub, and... More

My wife and I called in here for a quick drink on 17th Dec. It was a pleasure being in an ordinary clean and friendly bar with a landlord who went round talking to his customers- us included. Their range of beers was an adventure I would have liked to explore but time was pressing unfortunately. Of particular not was... More

Visited here with my partner and two children and I must say that this is a little gem. The new tenants Mandy and Stewart are very welcoming and told us that they have just started to serve food. Unfortunately we were only popping in for a drink but one of the locals pointed out that the food was excellent especially... More

Lovely pub, with welcoming owners . A choice of bars to enjoy the excellently kept ales. Although no food available in the pub, the owners kindly directed us to a local chip shop which we took back to the pub and enjoyed along with our ales. All in all a very nice place to spend a few hours of an... More
