Cosy, friendly, and steeped in tradition, with a great choice of well kept real ales. Cider lager and the odd Belgian also available.

A great little old railway station that has been made into a pub and museum. The station has many events to offer over the year including the cavalcade which they run! It’s a great little charity and can not be faulted !!

This place is really not suitable for children. Lots of adults drinking alcohol and smoking. Lack of understanding of health and safety with staff. Today to top it all loud awful music.
