My first visit for over two years I note! En-route home, 7pm and dead quiet in town. This place has recently been fully refurbished, and a nice job too. A comfortable layout and a decent food menu noted.

18:00 visit. First time in here this year and not much improvement noted on the attention to certain detail. Still an ok pub for an occasional stop. One other ale noted on with some strange clip proclaiming 'Best beer fest' and 'American ipa 3.8' but giving no other detail to put down here.
