Visited 23.4.21. First visit to this pub which was ever so friendly. Opens at 6pm most weekdays, but we were lucky as Friday is 3pm Sat and Sun 12 noon. Walk ins ok and we got a table at the rear. Their beer are listed on the Untappd venues app, but there is a beer board on the wall too. We chose cask Portobello Spring Ale and Grey Trees Drummer Boy, and draft Wild Weather Cephaloped 12% wow fantastic, and Electric Bear I can't believe it's next Tuesday 8%. These 2 draft beers, both stouts were our beers of the day. All beers good though and payment by card.

Just outside the town ring road. One large front room, high ceiling, classic pub furniture. No other punters. Surly barman who barely acknowledged a new potential customer.

Rear sports room to the back with a giant TV. Outside patio area, where I found some other patrons.

Beer was good - a couple of real ales on and I tried Bad Seed Brewery Old Skool. Which just about summed the place up.
