I have been in here several times, and whilst it is usually a little quiet each time I have been, the great beer choice, including numerous from the Sheffield Brewery who own the pub is always good.
I went in last Saturday however, just as the Hinckley and Bosworth Camra group were getting served at the bar. Whilst I waited, I observed the owner and couldn't help but notice a few things.
Firstly, the lack of welcome or friendly approach he took with this group was very poor. He served them, but struggled to offer more than a few words when any of the group spoke to him. As a Yorkshireman, I thought this was poor and not a great example of our county and its great pubs.
Worse however was seeing a cardinal sin - many of the group asked for one specific beer (the name escapes me), but on each occasion, he poured one he had already pulled into each glass before refreshing it from the pump.
This was clear for me to see, but not those that were being served as it was all done out of sight 'under the bar'.
It may not spoil a beer but surely the customer should have been given the opportunity to see this for themselves and decide if they wished their fresh beer to be supplemented by one already pulled ?
Yes this is a good pub, with a back garden overlooking the river to match, but do not take things for granted - this customer won't.

interesting interior, cheap beer, very clean but all the beers tried could have been better and cooler.

Liveliest pub on crawl yesterday, with live blues band playing. I enjoyed a pint of Five Rivers brewed onsite, but rather like the previous reviewer had time only for one pint. Will be back.

what a great find!! the most eccentric pub in the valley crawl and we all loved it!! £2.10 a pint of their own ale - you can't go wrong. I could spend all day in here but with another 5 to visit, we could unfortunately only stay for one. it's a 9 from me
