An ok pub, staff were very friendly and helpful, the best place to be is situated beside the bar as the room situated deep into to pub was a bit cold, bit soul-less, too loud music bouncing off wood floors made it feel like we were sitting in a drum. Apologies for putting it down, I'm sure it would be livelier on a Friday/Saturday night, I just think our timing was off. Will try again when it's busy.

*DO NOT BOOK, GONE BANKRUPT* Unfortunately we had to find this out from the lady who worked in Bargain Booze next door. Supposedly shut on Thursday (August 31st). No signage on the outside, nothing to indicate it had gone under. No email received saying not to travel, nothing. Just my wife and I sat outside like mugs waiting for the door to open. Absolutely shambolic and quite frankly, an embarrassment.
