11:25 Break on our journey from Norfolk to Liverpool. Had the front bar to ourselves. As on our previous visit I found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming.

12:30 Lunch stop on our way to Liverpool. Welcoming and friendly. The Landlord was very informative about the pub, the Company and the beers. The food was good as was the beer. Only jarring note was four chaps standing at the bar in front of the handpumps. Totally oblivious to my attempts to see what beers were on offer.
