Ok, I’m sure this is some people’s idea of a great spot - the booze is really cheap and they tend to show most major sport events, and often dj’s at the weekends. However, it’s dark and grubby, sticky tables and revolting toilets. It’s also...More

We popped in here as had been recommended it to us by friends. Lovely atmosphere and loved the beams and the old feeling. Good selection of beers and draught fosters only £3, can't be bad. Would certainly go back an enjoyable experience

I honestly don't know. But in the evening, it gets quite (often very) busy. And I don't think I've ever seen a dog in there. Sorry I can't be more helpful. I suggest you give them a ring: 00 44 1843 86105
