The decor has stripped the place of any character it may have once had. The wooden floors and bare walls are not only unwelcoming (in total agreement with another reviewer about this) but creates an echo which ruins the atmosphere and makes it difficult to hear your companions conversation.
In previous visits, most of the bar staff have been welcoming and friendly. However the landlord/ landlady's mother (?) seems to believe that it is perfectly acceptable to scream at the young children of customers for minor misbehaviour (knocked over a snowman), when the issue could have easily been remedied amicably with an apology and rebuilding.
If they're trying to market their business as being family friendly, this is not the way to treat your customers or their children.
I, for one, will take my business elsewhere in future.
