A nice old pub that's all cock-eyed and askew and a bit like crazy paving to look at from outside. Multi-roomed with plenty of low beams to smash your head against. That said it does have a disappointing selection of real ales with just JW Lees Bitter on. Its one of those pubs that looks all cock-eyed when sober but perfectly fine when bladdered. There seemed to be a room that's used as a carvery too.

Very old pub reputed to date to 1632, with half timbered walls. A real mix of rooms, most with low beams and stone flagged floors. There's one large room called The Sessions Room which used to be a courthouse. There's a quiz machine that wasn't working, looking rather out of place in here. Large, partially covered garden at the rear as well. Three handpumps on the bar all badged with Lees Bitter. I'm pretty sure a pub of this size should be able to support one of the Lees seasonals as well, especially as it was pretty busy at 3.30 on a Friday afternoon. My pint was OK without being top notch which was a bit of a let down as this pub is in the GBG 2013. I liked this pub, but the lack of choice on the beer front means that I'll only ever call in for one.
