Dropped in for a beer on bank holiday Monday. Lovely big pub garden which is a sun trap. Reasonable pricing. On the whole there are better pubs in town but it’s ok for a quick drink.

A very average bar. Good range of drinks. Staff are friendly and chatty! Bad experience once with an overly aggressive an rude door supervisor. Ideal pit stop for a drink between pubs!
