Great atmosphere, relaxing and clean pub. lots of lovely ales to try, you are able to try a sample before buying a pint. Or even try three thirds. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Lovely pub

The management was very rude. Short measure Un quality drinks on real ale. Also very threatening when questioned about the short measured drinks. I'm a member of camera and I find the threatening behaviour from management unbearable for a senior citizen.
