Two of us arrived for the grand opening at 4pm. The CAMRA discount button on the till did not work so we gladly accepted two pints for the price of one. The pub soon got very busy which is only to be expected on opening night.

I had heard that this place had re-opened with two real ales, and it had. This was a morning visit, and I was pleasantly surprised to find it open before lunch.
