“Excellent pub for a Black Beer.”

TripAdvisor ratingReviewed 2mos ago by paulclarkie

This pub has a very friendly family helpful atmosphere with food that exceeded our expectations. Particularly helpful we’re Emily and John behind the main bar.

“Absolutely horrible”

TripAdvisor ratingReviewed 2mos ago by 29jenp

Waited at the bar for service. Was completely ignored by all staff, who decided who they would serve regardless of who was actually next.
