Final pub of the day and just time for a quick one before closing. This pub has changed considerably since my last visit when it was one of the few unchanged Whitbread Fremlins pubs that had the added benefit of not having converted to top pressue dispense. It must have been over forty years ago but subsequent alterations and food advertisements just put me off returning. I was pleasantly surprised to see a fair range of ales on, and judging by the pump clips on display they must have had a fair selection over the years. I sat and reminisced about what the pub used to be in the 1970s.

Fairly busy in the restaurant area at lunchtime - no space outside as a marquee was being erected for the landlord's marriage on Saturday! Anyway we had a good meal with pleasant service.
