Saturday evening visit and first time in this pub. Four hand pulls at the bar all offering Stonehouse ales. I went for Off The Rails and my drinking accomplice had Sunlander, both of which were fine. Lots of stripped back wood inside, which I imagine would originally have been stained dark. Fairly nice place overall, mix of furniture/seating, relaxed feel to the place.

four real ales on from Stonehouse, the Gold was nice but not exactly £3.80 nice. Fairly traditional single roomed interior but I did find it a little dull and effeminate with the flowers on every table - all i’m saying is i’m sure a lot of men bring the wife here while secretly longing to be elsewhere.

A good traditional pub with three Stonehouse ales on handpump on our visit. We went for the Cambrian Gold and their Station Bitter, both were in good shape and had good flavour. We parked ourselves at the rear of the pub, where we found long benches and tables and if you fancy it, you can sign the table top. Also I noticed a row of colourful Victorian tiles running across the middle of the wall panelling. All in all, a comfortable pub with a nice laid back atmosphere.
