Full range of Robinsons beers, all in tip top condition as always. From Old Tom at 8.5% down, including a very nice seasonal traditional bitter. What's not to like! AND they even had one of the legendary pork pies from the local butcher, just up the hill
And it is fantastic to see that the local CAMRA group have considered their selections and restored this gem of a pub to the GBG 2020 - well done, my job is done!

The local CAMRA branch have finally decided to agree with us and the Golden Rule is now back in the 2020 Good Beer Guide.

It has also just won the accolade of the "Britain's Best Post Walk Pint" award, breaking the competition's record for the highest number of public votes in the process.

So, I'm back again and this pub, in my humble opinion, is still the best pub/bar in the town by a mile.
Friendly, welcoming pub, used by locals, students and visitors alike.
Full range of Robinsons ales and a draught cider.
Beer always well kept.

As ever, excellent selection of Robinsons beers, the full range and over the last 3 evenings, they have all been in top condition. The pork pies and scotch eggs are very tasty but go far too quickly. This remains the top pub in the area and clearly should be in the Good Beer Guide. It still features in the top 20 pubs on this website, so what are the local CAMRA group playing at?

My Golden Rule is "never drink before midday" !

Occasionally broken ...

Never been to this pub, but it's on my list for the future
