I live in the area and went to this pub for the first time today. Lovely atmosphere and the food was not too bad. What a shame the bar staff was as unfriendly as hell. He was very abrupt with customers, including me. I was told off for trying to take a photo in the upstairs lounge, in front of all the other customers. As there were no signs up about photography, and no reason to assume it wasn't allowed, it was a bit much and actually embarrassing. Way to go making your customers feel comfortable - not! I don't appreciate paying to be treated rudely, nor do other people, so perhaps the staff and owners should keep that in mind if they want to keep their customers. Luckily the girl who served us our food was friendly - about the only saving grace.
