A rather basic boozer with a couple of well kept real ales. Worth visiting only if you need a rest on your way to the Nags Head.

Really, a bit of a rundown music venue. Not much to add. Drinks range was the typical, with not much real ale.

Very much a rough-looking locals’ pub from the outside (albeit one with banners advertising local breweries slung over the front), your impression will not change much on first acquaintance with the interior. It’s tidy enough, but distinctly battered-looking. It’s even smaller inside than it looks from outside - just one, oddly-shaped room with a pool table squeezed down the side of the bar. There are 3 handpumps, serving regularly changing (according to the landlady) local ale (only two ales were on when we visited, both from Triple fff) plus the usual range of macros. The ale seemed to be in good condition, although rather on the warm side (on a humid day, cellar-temperature would have been welcome!). The pub has a happy hour from 5-7pm on weekdays when all draught beers (including real ales) are £2.10 a pint. There were strangely no bottled beers at all, although other reviews on the web state that the pub sells unusual bottled real ales, so perhaps we just timed our visit badly? If you commit yourself to exploring a convoluted alleyway to the rear of the pub you may eventually be lucky enough to find a tiny and rather ugly courtyard with a few outdoor seats. The landlady was very friendly, and I had the impression that if I started to visit more regularly it would be easy to become accepted by the clentele as a local. Overall this seemed a very cheerful, friendly, bottom-end traditional boozer - not the sort of place you’d take a date to, but a great place to go with some mates for a decent pint and a few games of pool.
