Still a beautifully unspoiled example of an old-fashioned corner pub. They've put a marquee in the garden (a legacy of the reopening rules after lockdown) and have a pizza van outside for food making better use of the previously under-utilised car park area. Inside has been given a touch up, but without in any way detracting from its cosy, welcoming vibe. Service and beers are excellent and prices reasonable. It's a McMullen's pub, so no guest ales unless you count McMullen's own Rivertown brand of slightly more contemporary beer styles. There's a nice small fire, it's dog friendly and they still put on live music including the pianist and spoon player duo. Timeless and should appeal to any civilised drinkers particularly those of a slightly nostalgic bent who can remember when all pubs were like this (spoiler alert - they never really were but this is how your idealised imagination has chosen to remember them).

After another lengthy walk across a golf course from the King & Tinker, I came across this backstreet McMullens house. I thought there was a karaoke going on initially. But I walked into a packed bar to find loads of old folk all having a sing-song on the piano. Feeling a little out of place there, I left them to "We'll Meet Again" and retreated to the lounge. McMullen's Cask Ale, Country Bitter & AK were on, as well as their new Rivertown Brewery's Citra. My AK was well priced. I seem to recall it was £3.20 for a pint. A good example of a thriving community local.

Now firmly ensconced in my list of favourite pubs to visit. The kind of pub where you might drop in for a quiet pint of a Tuesday night to find an entire table of middle-aged ukelele players practicing some classic pop songs (true story). The lounge bar is still as cozy and lovely as it ever was, but I find myself growing equally fond of the saloon bar. They seem to have added another draft lager and some more bottles to their range of top notch McMullen's ales too.
The thing that has struck me about this place on my more recent visits is how timeless and traditional a pub this is. When the weather was a little better about two months ago, I sat outside enjoying a pint or two and a chat with some mates as a couple of musicians played a set of folky/music hall type songs inside and I commented to my friends that part of the appeal of this place is the thought that the way we were spending our evening would have been roughly the same as a group of friends drinking here at any point in the last 70-odd years. Some things were never broken and didn't need fixing, and traditional local pubs like this are one of those things.

Popped in for a quick pint and ended up staying for a few more! Made to feel at home as soon as I came in and well kept ale. Utterly charming barmaid who was a student but who obviously knew all who came in or made time to get to know people.

This is quite an overlooked pub but beats the local Witherspoons hands down in terms of clientele and customer service - one to revisit in the very near future I think......

Old school boozer, set slightly back off the main road.

Popped in for a quick pint this afternoon. Sadly the guest 'Movember' ale was off so had a pint of Country Bitter (£3.20) which was one of three McMullen's offerings. Perfectly respectable pint.

No TVs, just the radio playing in the background, roaring fire at one end and the joanna sat quietly along one wall.

Pies and pasties advertised for between £1.50-£1.80 if you wanted food.

Decent alternative to the Jolly Butchers if you're in the area and want a pint of ale in a pub that feels like a pub.
