I called in here on a Friday night and the pub was apparently holding the AGM for the Tourettes Appreciation Society. Three rooms and a bar area, two of which had a real fire roaring away in the grate. The front room was full of English blokes swearing at each other in a friendly sort of way and the rear room was full of Asian blokes swearing at each other. I bought myself a pint of Sam Smiths Dark Mild which was something ridiculous like £1.34 and went to sit in the rear room just for the craic. Within about 3 minutes I was being involved in the conversation. I sat and chatted with the locals for about 20 minutes before making my way into town. It's a proper local, but it's certainly not for the faint hearted.

Usual warm welcome !
Following apparent recent changes in Sam Smiths policy allowing catering at their pubs, Dave said he'd like to have music again.
