As a new arrival in the area I was saddened to find that my first visit to this pub would also be my last as it was closing due to lack of customers. A case of use it or lose it ? I found the atmosphere good and would have definitely used the only pub in the immediate area.
The cheese and onion crisps were fine (they had by that stage stopped doing food), and had an excellent pint of Hereford Pale Ale (HPA). There was a friendly, if rather sad banter.
