Visited here for the first time early on Thursday evening. I was surprised to find 4 ales. The regular ale is Fuller's London Pride. But they also had Twickenham Naked Ladies & Caledonian Golden XPA & Autumn Red. We tried both of the Caledonian beers and neither were in a particularly good condition. Didn't spend much time inside, as we sat outside on the patio at the front. But the interior did seem nice enough. Didn't inspire me sufficiently to attempt a return visit.

Nicely refurbished and with some good beer (XPA), pizzas daily except Sunday when it's a Sunday roast. Garden is ok. Needs bicycle parking - perhaps that area round the side they haven't finished yet could have a bike rack in it?

Currently closed for refurbishment, "opening soon" apparently.

First visit to this wonderful pub on Sunday and certainly looking to return. There are now 5 real ales to choose from with a great selection ranging from the citrus/floral/golden ale end of the spectrum up to more malty offerings.

As mentioned below the welcome was fantastic - it felt that we had been coming here for years, not just moved into town. Both Peter and Jane are great hosts and Georgina has to be up for barmaid of the year award.

The food - well we had the Sunday Roasts and I think it would not be overdoing it if I said these were probably the best roasts I have ever had. I don't eat meat so just had extra veg and it was fantastic. I know it might seem odd to rave on about how well they were cooked but when you're a veggie well cooked vegetables are an absolute delight.

The pub has a garden in the front and back meaning that you can catch the rays and then move into the cool interior and flop over the sofas when it all gets a bit too much.

So, if you like a good range of ales, excellent food, and service from folks who really seem to care that you have a great experience then make the effort to visit - you will not be disappointed.

Oh yeah - Come On You Irons :-)

Great food and very personal service from Jane and Peter. Interesting and varied specials board, the grilled duck was excellent and the accompanying stir fry was well presented and quite different. Three real ales on, none of which I'd had before, opted for the Theakstons Masham four and twenty., not disappointed. Will be returning and would recommend the pub. It deserves more support than it appears to be getting.
