Does a good range of ales and always kept in great condition. I walk, cycle or get a lift here just because the beer is kept so well.

This place is a trip back in time. It has been in the same family for 150 years and don't think much has changed! They do it their way here, a changing menu of real ales, a short menu of traditional British fare like fab...More

Forget Gastro Pub, forget trendy. This is a pub representing all pubs of the past with charm by the bucket load. No big menu for food and not so much as a nod to modernity. Real beers and simple snacks with outside views over the...More

A great (and ever changing) variety of real beers. The food menu is a bit limited, but what there is, is excellent - in particular, the ham sandwiches were thick & juicy.
