A proper pub with all sorts of customers. Good if you want to watch sport and the London Pride is very good. Ideal location in the middle of town close to other pubs and restaurants.

We are a lovely town centre locals sports pub. We offer a wide range of draughts and bottles. From lagers and ciders to ales. Our prices are outstanding and known to be one of the cheapest in town. We try to show every sport you can think of on our 7 large screen Tv's. If we haven't got what you're looking for on our Tv just ask at the bar and we'll try and put it on for you. Come in and say "hi" to our lovely and friendly bar staff and enjoy a pint or two.
