Still serving very short measure and wasn't asked if I wanted my 3/4 pint topped up to the legal measure.

Great pub with friendly service, warm cosy atmosphere and a bit cheaper than the Blundell, just down the road. Food not quite as good as the Bllundell but staple british pub grub and delicious deserts.

This used to be a regular favourite for drinks and food but the service on our last visit very poor. Staff were more interested in continuing conversations than serving.
