A lot has changed at this pub.

Since opening, the facelift has attracted a great clientelle from the offices during the days to local and town revellers in the evenings.

The food and snacks are very popular and very reasonably priced, as too are the real ales and a good selection of drinks.

The bands on Fridays are varied and play greats sets, whilst on Saturday there is a DJ who also has Karaoke in his repetoire.

A very welcoming pub that has a late licence - 2am - and is located handily for the station and the taxis.

Whether starting or finishing the evening, you are always made to feel welcome and have some fun in the confortable, non pretentious surroundings.
