I have been in here half a dozen times over about a decade. It has always been pleasant but this week, my first visit in a while it felt more welcoming and hospitable. A good feel and from the signs it has a lot more going on and definitely it seems to be on the up.
Brilliant pub, everyone welcome. Staff very friendly and Dave the landlord always available for a chat and a laugh. Various entertainment nights through the week, with the Thursday curry night being a personal favourite. Cheap food, normal bar price drinks in welcoming and friendly pub.
