Dont understand the comments by the fruit machine man. i reckon he was an undesirable myself. Anyway, love this pub. always sport on and the manager and mrs are obviously working hard to look after and boost the local trade. real good sunday lunches aswell.

Went there on a Thursday night, had a good time but only stayed for one drink. Would have stayed for more but one of the darts team, a large lad, kept shouting and swearing at the top of his voice - the C word being a particular favourite.

For the short time I was there this kept on - not sure why the staff tolerated it to be honest. A few others commented on it and said they wouldn't be coming back either.

Good bar otherwise if you can tolerate your conversation being interuppted by a fog horn shouting "C**T!!" every few seconds.

I ordered a coke and I sidled over to the quiz machine and put in a quid. I played off a few quid while the publican busied himself. I vaguely remember that he was taking a phone call.

Not long later I become aware of halitosis wafting over my shoulder and it is the friendly landlord.

"look mate you're obviously intelligent but you have to take the �9 and leave. I'm switching the machine off and you are leaving." he said.

"in fact no, you can't have the �9 - you can fack off now. If you come back i'll break your fackin nose. The pub next door has called and said you was in there too."

At this point I told him that I'd had some lunch in there but this seemed to fan the flames.

"go on, fack off. If you come back I'll knock your fackin teeth out."

I don't reccomend this pub !

Pride was on and a Landlord pumpclip turned around. �3.40 a pint was the most expensive we paid in the area. The Pride was drinkable but un-inspiring. Wouldn't bother visiting again as there are a lot better pubs in the area.
