Fairly modern pub that is made to look much older. The long and narrow interior was popular with both drinkers and diners on our Wednesday evening visit. 4 ales were on - Thwiates Nero, Original & Lancaster Bomber plus Ringwood Forty Niner. The 7.4% Nero was causing a bit of concern with the bar staff who were only prepared to dispense it in halves! It was however quite pleasant. Not bad for a Thwaites tied house.

Visited last Saturday night. It is a small, one-roomed pub but it was crowded just as it was on my last visit a couple of years ago. Four ales available plus three Thwaites regulars. Ale was well kept. A reasonable age range amongst the customers. The owners seem to have got things right. Keep up the good work!
There was a musical duo called Alternative Radio entertaining the punters.
I seem to remember they were playing exactly the same songs twenty five years ago!

Went here last night to see a musical duo. The place was crowded.
This is a Thwaites pub so I had a pint of Wainwright which was nice. However, upon asking for a second I was told they'd run out. This was poor considering it was 9:30 on a Saturday night.
I then had a pint of Original followed by a pint of seasonal ale called Autumn or something similar. Both were fine.

Finally got to try this pub and it was a pleasant experience. A comfortable environment where I had a very acceptable pint of Wainwright ale, a light coloured 4.1 ABV drink. Service from the lady behind the bar was prompt and with a smile and my pint was topped up without me asking. Not many customers but then it was a mid-week afternoon. The ten or so elderly patrons were all there for the food.

I've never been to this pub until last night when I found it closed!
Apparently somebody new has taken it on and is refurbishing it.
