Under new management since my last visit and all seems well. I did not make a note of all the beers on offer but they seemed to be from local breweries. We sat in the lounge area to the right as you enter and had this area to ourselves. We would probably have stayed for another but the buses stop running well before it gets dark so we made do with just the one pint each.

Old Dairy - Red Top3.80ExcellentVery good indeed, perhaps not as sweet as it used to be, and more to my liking.
