This is a pub. If you are seeking a pub-like experience then here you have it. A gem of a place all warm wood and smiley barman and beer. If you are a doubter then go there - it will restore your faith in pubkind

Often pop in for a Bass - fab beer and a lovely atmosphere in a proper pub. Only ever eaten a cheese and onion roll and crisps here but then we pop in for a pint and a half of Bass, not to eat!

This is the real deal. Authentic English Pub with lots of nooks and crannies. Great for just relaxing and maybe hearing some of the local gossip. Not too many tourists here, just the locals. There was music when we were here on a Saturday evening.

Small and cosy this place is a real gem. Great beer, a fire and a very real atmosphere, what more do you want from a pub, no sign of the mass chain like monsters here. You get a real feel of what pubs used to be like before the large brewery and chains took over with their large TVs, sky... More

One of the few real pubs left in the UK. No frill. Good beer. Small. Best in winter with cheering fires.

We went here on a crisp Boxing Day after walking the bath skyline walk and It was as lovely and homely as what I have read about it. Just two small simple wood panelled rooms make up the bar that is a real treat for the real ale drinker. The bell hanger is the best pint I've ever drank and... More

Simple cosy pub with great fresh beer served from the barrel. Friendly landlord...knows his locals and serves with a smile and conversation. No fruit machines or music unless a folk band randomly strikes up. Well worth a visit
