Mid afternoon - a good number of customers, some eating. Not really a micro - two bar areas, one with booths, and a reasonable sized menu. Good feel to it - lots of memorabilia and pub clutter. I like it.

This great micro has no beer garden but fortunately the small engineering firm across the road has kindly allowed the pub to use some spare yard space as a beer garden and it works a treat, socially distanced benches, hand sanitizer station and chemical toilets and urinals all in place. Great 👍
