Every week I step back in time for a drink and I wouldn't change a thing. No fruit machines, no jukeboxes, no free Wi-Fi access, just good beer and good conversation. What else would you want?

Sue always has a good selection of real ales that are kept in good condition. You can see the great selection of beers that was available at the time listed on the chalk board on the right-hand side of the serving window.

As you can tell this isn't a new pub, far from it. This building is listed as being a pub (or inn) since the 15th century and I'm glad to say not much has changed over the years. It's what gives the place it's atmosphere.

If you're ever passing by then please pop in and have a beer or two, it'll be worth it. And if you do, tell Sue I sent you.
