Back for a cycle meet 4 weeks after I left here for my big trip. Warm words of congratulations. Pretty full around the bar and a good number eating and in the garden. Continues to be a good trad pub with food.

Thursday lunchtime - pleased to see the pub doing well. Missed their recent beer festival unfortunately - it apparently was very successful. Must try harder next year. Only 2 ales on I think - Gadds was so good I stayed on it.

Back again with the “bus pass” group. Excellent service, well sheltered outdoor space. A very good session - this is what we have been missing.

Lunchtime. Our monthly micropub group decided a bigger pub may be better this month. We weren’t disappointed. Plenty of tables and three covered areas in the garden including an outside bar. Two beers straight from the barrel outside and remarkably cool considering the ambient temperature- some cunning plumbing working well.

My first visit here, I had been meaning to come to this pub for a long time as it has very good reports. A really good boozer doing a brisk lunchtime trade with both food and wet trade. Well worth the effort of coming here.
