A return visit for lunch on Saturday to what is now a very clearly-branded Thwaites pub. Their Original, Gold, IPA and Amber were the 4 handpulls; my pint of Original at £4.70 was good as was the food. Strange behaviour from the girl who gave us the bill though as, in saying that she couldn't void the amount on the card machine in order to add an extra 10%, she lost the opportunity to receive a tip as who carries separate cash nowadays?

Now looks very different internally to the photos on this site with the pine and traditional furniture having made way for a much more modern gastropub feel (although there is still an area for drinkers at one end of the pub). Thwaites Lancaster Bomber, Wainwright & Lil' Bewdy and Backyard's Blonde were the 4 ales on sale - I stuck to the Lil' Bewdy at £3.60 a pint which was very good. Food was excellent.

A friendly pub with an emphasis on food, but nonetheless with ample space if you just want to sup a drink. Three Thwaites ales on offer and Pilsner Urquell. As it was a warm day I opted for the latter, which was refreshing. Well worth visiting although the beer prices are at the higher end. 9/10.

Upon reviewing the previous commentary regarding this establishment, I feel in wholehearted agreement. Despite the previous landlord being an ignoramus, the pub itself was splendid; with good food and a country-bumpkin homliness about it.
In winter months, a good fire warms my body while good beer warms my soul.
In summer months, it is often difficult to find a spot to sit outside (and I did encounter the bizarre experience of a group of cyclists dressed as 1920's farm labourers performing a morris dance esque ritual before me). This behaviour went past eccentricity I had to double check to ensure my pint wasn't based with LSD.

The prices are reasonable, and this in itself excludes the more vulgar like people who do somethings inhabit inneries. There was a good range of real ale, and I selected a pint of a good beer. My second slightly psychedelic experience was the fact that to get a signal to pay on card, the poor barman had to stand outside in the rain with the card machine.

The toilets, always something to judge a pub by, were clean, and there was ample Carex available.

Although many in the current age would rather spend a fiver for a bottle of 'trendy' Tibetan beer in a 'gastro' bar with elongated tables and high chairs, I thoroughly enjoyed the contrast in this horse-hoof decorated pub. In the final analysis, this pub is, in a sense, like the morris dancers and the horse hoofs. That far out, the way out is in. But by Joe, it was enjoyable!

the managment here has changed recently, and what a breath of fresh air, the old manager seemed to not care for his customers in the slightest, having apprehansively started drinking back here again i have found the staff, ALL of the staff, to be more than welcoming and they cant do enough for you. I went in here with my dogs and they were given treats and water to drink! The atmosphere was great, full of people, not something you see so much these days.
