Came in for a drink before a meal on a Saturday lunchtime. Good range of real ales, friendly service, good seating. Good place to call in if you are in town.

We just called in for a quick drink as it was a rainy afternoon and it looked busy in side, we now know why! lt is a real ale pub with plenty to choose from, my husband enjoyed the ales l tried a raspberry beer which was very nice, it seemed a popular drink for the ladies in there it is a very popular pub for all ages groups from young to old, we did not see any disabled toilets as main loos up a flight of stairs

Ordered Wild Boar sausages. potatoes and creamy mustard mash - sausages looked like Walls 3 small links not what I expected and no mash potato on plate at all. Whoever heard of sausage and mash without any mash. For eleven quid I expected a decent plateful not this pitiful offering. I emailed them with my complaint and they haven't even bothered getting back to me so I'm posting experience here.
Beer is not bad though.

At 7.45 we got one of the last tables where there was room to eat. (there was a party in the upstairs room) Obviously a popular place both for eating and drinking - possible more drinking when we were there. We were warned that there would be a delay with the food but it came in the half hour and was freshly cooked, belly pork and fish pie which didn't leave room for a desert.
