Wales were beating Ireland in the Six Nations much to the delight of the chap we were standing next to in the pub. I liked the pub.

Evening. Good honest house with competitive prices. Never had a bad pint here. Tonight a good debate was afire about the sequence of events during the Falklands War. Immediate Google access can sometimes kill an argument.

Late Saturday afternoon, the front part of the pub was very busy so we ventured up to the room at the rear of the pub before heading to the Railway Station via the Village Free House.
