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

A well-loved back street boozer, recently refurbished. A good range of real ales are squeezed onto the small bar. The landlord tends to concentrate on well known regional brands, however there are a good range of more eclectic choices available in bottled form, including continential beers, as well as a number of ciders. Locally renowned for regular live music and hosting local events.
