Last visited this pub some 20 years ago and was a mediocre experience, but wow someone with vision has certainly got behind the wheel!

Relaxed and friendly service in a very cosy and warming pub with original interior. Food tasty and the potato chips very good! Make sure to order something form the Dancing Duck brewery!

We regularly visit this fantastic old pub. Usually start here when on a pub crawl in the area. Food is very good but the real ales are better!

One of my most favourite places to both eat and drink. Lovely, cosy place to hide away in in the winter but equally a great place to socialise in the summer, highly recommend!
