The pub served a good selection of real ales and ciders and held jazz nights, accoustic nights, bingo, quiz nights and had board games available.

We were advised on August 2nd 2016 that this pub is currently closed. If you know any more (perhaps it's reopened?) please let us know.

Update: when visited at the end of March 2017, the pub was obviously still closed; even the same "Live tonight" sign showing as back in June 2016. Though the building is obviously occupied.

Update 2 When visited in July 2018, the pub appeared as if it had probably reopened; this has since been confirmed.

It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
