Recently refurbished (2009) to a high standard. Opens all day Sat and Sun with lunch served daily (except Mon) and traditional home cooked Roast Of The Day on Sundays (booking advisable). Quiz night every Wednesday. Popular with cyclists, ramblers and many local groups. Occasional Irish folk nights. Traditional pub games include darts, dominoes and cribbage. The pub is located on the Green Wheel Cycle Route, has a regular bus service right to the door (Kimes) and a large car park. Outdoor drinking terrace and a separate smoking shelter. Many old photographs on show. No jukebox, gaming machines or pool table, a proper drinking and conversation pub with friendly locals.
