Simply the best pub in Mansfield for real ale variety, ambience and beer festival events. Good quiz nights and regular live music.

Love this pub. It's our local and we didn't expect to find quite such a gem on our doorstep. Great guest ales. Can get very busy.

The selection of real ale is always vast and the staff know what they are talking about. Festivals and variety with acoustic nights and quiz nights etc. Not had loads of food but cheese board is brill and the Rustic Crust is fantastic. Excellent pub.
