This is a wonderful and proper pub, not given over to corporate formula. Lovely people running the place and punters are all up for a chat and very friendly. Lots of live and original music in small attached venue room. This place is truly a gem which is getting harder to find in UK. Please go and enjoy a real pub.

Went in for the first time and it felt really welcoming. Staff and people in the pub were all friendly. Definitely worth a visit. Hoping they will get some gluten free beer in soon.

What an excellent spot for a great venue. The pub itself is how a pub should be. No television, but plenty of games, darts, snooker etc. Staff are excellent, good humoured and courteous. The venue (500 years old!) is attached to the pub, and is perfect for any sort of gig, whether soft folk, or hard rock. Some of the gigs at the weekend are free. I had a really enjoyable night there, with the owner also running the venue, doing the sound, and generally making everyone welcome. The outdoor smoking area is huge, and would be great in the warmer months. Good prices and great choice of cider. Could not fault this gem of a pub.

Went to watch an artist perform. Arrived early for drinks in the bar. greeted with a smile, the prices were good, the locals seemed friendly too.

The kind of place you feel at home in, a little run down, not a fake "theme pub", darts board and pool table and "The Levellers" on the jukebox. My kind of place !
