Visited today to an empty pub. It was so very cold in there I think this may be part of the reason. Drinks are expensive here and they do not even fill the pint to the top! Poor show.

I am extremely sorry that you experienced this miceman. I assume that this was today? We are a community pub and as such welcome families, however, we do have a policy of children not sitting at the bar and children should be under parental control. I am not sure what happened on this occasion but it will be rectified. Many thanks for drawing it to our attention.

The new management evidently wants to run a kindergarten so if you like to see toddlers on the bar stools and rolling on the floor this is the place for you.

Went in one weekday lunchtime. Not very busy but quality of the ale (Fullers - Bengal Lancer) was fine and food very nice if a little expensive. Very nice environment. I would come back for a drink at least.

Nice looking place. Large beer garden, which unfortunately overlooks the car park and housing estate on one side (could to with some screening bushes/shrobs/Leylandii!!)
Fullers, so you know what you're getting beer-wise. Reasonable nick - I tend to stick to Chiswick. Their summer ale is a bit dull though, to be honest.
New manager ? Seem like a friendly bloke, and staff are efficient and pleasant.
