We popped in here for a quick drink whilst mooching round the Christmas market. Decent beer and the atmosphere was friendly enough, its not really my kind of pub with the TVs etc but seemed very popular with locals and visitors, staff are friendly which makes all the difference!

Popped into this pub midday on a really hot afternoon. Great seating area outside where you can sit and watch the world go by. Staff were spot on including the little terrier who checks you out on arrival. I have never seen any pub not improved by the odd mutt in it so this was all good. Decent range of... More
