A good visit from 12:00 opening for about three hours, we sat in the right hand bar which boasts Devil among the Taylors, Bar Billiards and a 45rpm juke box. We purchased some superb pork pies to accompany our beer. I noticed that a micropub has opened opposite this pub but I will leave that one for another day.

Evening visit, friendly and efficient bar staff. I was tempted to play some vinyl on the 45rpm juke box but I was afraid that Charlie Drake's "My Boomerang Won't Come Back" might get me thrown out. This pub is now a regular stockist of Harvey's Elizabethan Ale in bottles.
