A rare example of a back-street pub that is a former beer house and has only had a full license since 1962.

Tucked away, but located quite close to the nearby railway station with its magnificent early Victorian façade.

All beer is served on gravity from a small temperature controlled room behind the bar. Up to twelve beers are available, see slates hanging over bar. Also up to ten ciders are available during the summer months (ask for more details).

Hot and cold snacks are always available. The pub has two darts teams and a cribbage team.

Friendly locals and good conversation are the order of the day. Treasure it, there are few left like it.
