Loved this place whilst on holiday. Darts games comfy seats. Very friendly owner or bar staff. Seems like a popular local. Toilets look like a national treasure. Decent cider selection including a 7%’er

I was giving my track and trace details, but when I gave my post code they said they were only serving local people. I understand keeping staff safe, but this isn't the law and I think they just don't like tourists. The restaurant down the street and the other pub were fine with having us, and were really friendly.
Pretty quiet for a Thursday evening, but it's November. Love the new styling, I could quite happily spend the day in the comfy snug up the level with friends

Beer was disappointing, but that's a matter of taste. You should go and try it. Nice to find an out-and-out pub!
