Yes...cosy sums this pub up doesn’t it......if you come round the corner on a foggy night and see the windows lit up, it entices you in.

Four of us visited the pub on a Saturday lunchtime. The landlady was hostile and rude towards us before we even ordered a drink. We left (without ordering) and won't be returning. Interestingly, the pub had one customer at the time. I wonder why.
