Fabulous selection of drinks, no TVs, no music, no gaming or gambling, just plenty of friendly drinkers - old school! Pizzas cooked fresh to order Fridays from 5.30pm.

This has been my favourite pub for a long time. Usually busy with a buzzing atmosphere, always friendly welcoming staff and of course a brilliant selection of excellent quality beer! Follow them on Facebook and you can usually check what beer is on.
