Visit here every few weeks with my husband. Nice to get an old fashioned pub, good atmosphere. Older crowd-always feel under age and I'm in my 40's lol.

Was here with friends, and was happily buying drinks all evening.One of our party requested a glass of tap water at the bar,and was refused. Was told that they don't serve tap water. Won't be returning. Not recommended.

This pub has all the makings of a good night out. Lots of people even on a rainy night . Staff are perceptive and when you get to the bar are served very quickly.
