Lovely little pub with a fantastic selection of beers, which has resurrected part of a former Whitbread pub that ceased trading decades ago.
No TV, no gaming machines, no music (the only concession is the open mic night on the first Sunday of the month), no food, just good ale and cider and the buzz of conversation. It only takes a few people to be present to generate a really pleasant and relaxing atmosphere.
