Enjoyable evening with three musical acts of high quality, in the very comfortable, shabby-chic Attic Room. Nice mini-pizzas cooked outside in the garden. Beer enjoyable. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

A dump with an unpleasant landlord. Overpriced beer and poor quality food. Count your change very carefully!

Went here with some friends. Nice average pub. Got a music venue that can be hired for events. Would be better if drinks were cheaper to be honest. Quite chilled out place. Not desperate to go back.

Yes, although very limited. There is, however, a large car park within the train station, situated directly opposite the pub.
