First stop on a tour of pubs that I rarely visit. Service was delayed a bit as the post-mix needed changing for somebody's drink and the Young's ran out whilst my drink was being poured. I had one drawn from a new cask in the cellar but unfortunately I had to rush it in order to catch the next bus. I got the feeling that this pub has good potential and I plan to visit again.

Not been here for some years. The place hadn't changed much but we had a good value meal with pleasant service. Only one real ale on.

Visited with friends at lunchtime following a recommendation for the food. Was not disappointed and had splendid lamb chops and a good sized gammon among the dishes tried. It seemed fairly quiet. Was disappointed to find only one Real Ale available which was Green King IPA. London Pride was not available that day and apparently the third pump for a guest beer was only used in the summer.
