This listed, red brick street corner pub has been run by the same family for over 30 years. It has two bars and a rare off sales counter. The pub is in sight of Greene King's Westgate Brewery. Good value lunches are available Monday to Saturday in this homely hostelry.

Excellent, well-kept ales, including up to three genuine (ie, not Greene King label) guest ales.

Children are not allowed in the pub, but are welcome in the beer-garden.

The building dates from the 17th century with a 19th century exterior. Some parts may be as old as 15th century.
