See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

A well-loved back-street boozer with a traditional layout and feel, refurbished sensitively in 2021. A wide selection of real ales is squeezed into the small bar. The landlord tends to concentrate on well-known regional brands; however, there is a good range of more eclectic choices available in bottles, as well as a number of ciders. The pub is locally renowned for regular live music and hosting community events. A popular quiz night is held every second Wednesday of the month.
