This early Victorian backstreet community free house is located just five minutes from the town centre. The Dove has six hand pumps plus jugged ales brought up direct from the cellar. Also a good selection of real ciders. Truly traditional and basic, just how pubs used to be - no lager, TV's, pool or gaming machines. The staff here are very knowledgeable about their ever-changing range of local ales, hence a winner of CAMRA Regional Pub of the Year, twice.

Don't be put off by the Greene King signage, this is a freehouse with an excellent range of well-kept ales.
