A proper old fashioned pub, plenty of wood, nooks and crannies and a decent selection of ale. It did feel like a stranger was going to strike up a banjo when the strangers entered!

In simple English, a gem! I stopped by on GBG recommendation on my way back into London from Southend on 23rd December 2008. This is everything a PROPER pub should be, six ales on handpump (of which Oscar Wilde Mild and Crouch Vale Brewers’ Gold were both exquisite). The landlord even took an interest in why I chose those two beers to which I replied they were the two best beers avaliable in my humble experience. Ceiling absolutely covered with beer clips from very interesting breweries It was full of pre-Christmas buzz, and it makes such a difference to be in a pub full of genuinely cheerful people. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and I was afforded a welcome seldom seen in London. Shame I had to catch the last train back otherwise I would have stayed for more. It is worth spending a whole evening in this pub, and for me it was a great discovery! Excellent, well-deserved 82 points. Revisited on 21 December 2012. Unchanged!
