Great place to experience real and crafted ales, both by pump and bottle/can. Great range of beers from around the world. Also good choice of spirits, particularly whiskey and gin. Pleasant unspoilt small layout with a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Worth a visit.

Good selection of ales but not a very friendly atmosphere, regular clientele seemed to be made more welcome.

Good beers, a good laugh, excellent quiz on Wednesday evenings and then there's James......... He's the owner and he has this unhealthy obsession with Sharp's Doom Bar. Seriously though, if you want a decent drink with a lovely atmosphere then come and visit. Music nights...More
