I have eaten sqid for lunch here. MY friends drink here daily during lunch and sometimes in the evening. I have just arrived from overseas. And I am not impressed by the service. As a new patron, I expect a polite conversation from the bar staff, and they don't even ask how my day is? Or where I'm from? No customer service skills at all. And it's disappointing because my friends are local for 25 years they been coming here. They no longer have a chess board, only crib. A coffee /pint of Guinness is around £10.00. Big court yard. No parking, and it's uphill back to town. Staff have no area to smoke away from customers.

Thank you so much to Liz and the rest of the staff for looking after us so well at my parents' 60th birthday party. Great service, friendly and super accommodating. Everyone raved about how good the venue was!

A fantastic pub at the bottom of north hill. Great service at all times and they do great food and good offers too. Fantastic bar garden and also show live sport. The pub has a lot of character due to being founded in 1520.

Great place for a chill out with a pint, sports and food. Brilliant service particularly from the young lady. Happy and smiling for all the days I visited. Top notch.

Lovely quaint pub with different seating areas. Staff were ever so friendly and helpful. Food was a very pleasant surprise. Wasn't expecting much but it was delicious. The mozzarella & Pesto salad was fresh and very tasty. The mix grill was everything you want from a mix grill. They had run out of rump steak so was given a burger... this looked homemade and was really tasteful, and the egg was perfect 👍. Will definitely go back when in the area again 😀
