I was walking past and noticed the pub was having a three day beer festival starting today, well it would be rude not to enter. The three regular beers on the bar and the festival in the garden at the rear, it was nice to find all beers at £3pp and no glass deposit. The beer festival was being run independently of the pub by a group of young beer enthusiasts calling themselves "Worth a butchers".

This pub has currently got one of its superb displays outside, currently on a Star Wars theme, on a previous visit I once had to enter through a Tardis and was served by staff dressed as Cybermen. A traditional pub once inside and I was pleased to see a local beer on offer.

22:00 visit. A 75th birthday bash out the back and a good few inside too made for a lively crowd in this decent local pub. Nice staff.
