What a fantastic pub. Just popped in for a quick drink before lunch and was made to feel so welcome. Locals happy to have a chat and many singing away to the duke box. Will definitely be back if in the area.

This is what a family pub is about, yes it's a local but they are also looking after one another. It is a fun place, good service, spit & saw dust setting but a warm welcome. We come back time and time again.

Been here a few times, it has atmosphere, characters, good staff and friendly people. A typical pub which is a rare sight nowadays… Worth a look to see for yourself..

If you want a pub that gives you pure entertainment, where everyone gets involved, then you need look no further. This place absolutely buzzes with people on the bar dancing and singing, the whole pub is just one happy experience. Great atmosphere and great staff....More
