An old pub with a great atmosphere. A nice way to end a motorbike ride with simple but good value meals. Great bands on the weekends. Careful if you are offended by topless barmaids.

Fabulous atmosphere. They have great meals and wonderful bands. Lazy relaxing summer afternoon type pub with great charm. Beer garden, nice food, happy staff and hard working owner. Drinks are cold and bands are hot! What more could you ask for 😀
