A proper old school boozer. Where everybody knows your name. Roaring fires and a Great selection of local ales. Not tried the new menu yet.

Met with friends here for drinks and hot food. Good choices, good prices, good service, good quality and quantity for the price. ONLY criticism is that it's a sports-pub with nonstop coverage on large-screen televisions. BUT would imagine that's great IF you're a sports fan.
