This GBG pub is closed on Tuesdays. It still has Barnsley Bitter (fine) and Sam Smiths Bitter but is not a Sam Smiths pub. The guest last night was Taylors Landlord. The Old English cider is no more, the friendly landlord is undecided what to replace it with. Welcomes dogs, and smells a bit of them.

Got there at 6.40 tonight to find everything closed. A local then told me it opened at 7, but there was still nno sign of life well after that so I moved on. No opening hours are displayed outside.

Like walking back into the '70's, but a great village pub with friendly locals. Sam Smith's, Barnsley Bitter and Clark's Harvest Special were on during our visit. The cider was Olde English, which I hadn't tasted for ages!

A small, traditional two-roomed pub, on the edge of a village undergoing substantial gentrification. The interior is pretty plain, verging on the drab.
Three real ales on my visit: Sam Smith's Bitter, Tetley Bitter and Acorn Barnsley Bitter. The Acorn was clean tasting and a decent temperature. Also, pretty cheap at 1.76 a pint.
The barman was friendly and efficient.
There is seating in front of the pub and a decent beer garden to the side.
Handy for 'The Heronry' country park and good walking, including part of the Trans-Pennine Trail.
As the character of the village is changing,I wonder how long the pub will stay in its present form?
