Came here for a decent pint after the Seven Stars, wasn’t disappointed. Amusing ‘A’ boards outside including “Nappies and politicians should be changed often - both for the same reason!”

Sunday afternoon, quite busy with lunches. The large table in the front window has been replace with three small tables. The open fire seems to be non-functional now. Pleasant ambience though.

Stop 6. Warm, nice ambience, log fire - but oh the beer choice! Shame, previous visits have found some unusual ales on.

Sunday lunchtime a few eaters in the far end - after a long wait at an empty bar I finally settled down in the comfy armchair with my pint for a quiet read - a family of seven came in shortly with other ideas. I drank up and departed.
