See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Small comfortable local in a quiet residential street. Decor is plain and conservative. The stone patio area at the rear can be used as a function room, but in good weather, one wall can be removed, providing access to the garden. Hot snacks are available throughout the day until 9pm.
In autumn 2018 the pub manager negotiated a new long-term lease independent from the small pubco who held the previous lease, and set about revitalising the pub.
Amongst the initiatives are a special deal on Tuesdays when real ale prices are reduced by £1/pint (for all customers, not just CAMRA members). The pub also no longer has a beer tie, and management intend to have a changing and varied selection of real ales which will prominently feature beers from small local breweries.
The pub has regular music nights and plan an increasing range of events. Check the pub facebook site for more details.
