Cask Marque accredited. Central bar, with a huge dining room attached to the back. Strangely, the Log burner appeared to be pumping the smoke into the pub.

Beer wise, it was a bit uninspired, with just the staples of Doom Bar and Golden Hen available. The Doom Bar was in excellent condition.

This is a detached pub, with patio, beer garden and kid's play areas, along with animals (donkeys). It is a lengthy and what looks like a Victorian build, that has been extended over time. It is in white painted brick, with an array of different styled and sized windows, with a porch and roof coping. The interior is irregular in shape, and pretty much now open-plan around an island of a serving bar. The décor is one of white and brick, with a white and beam ceiling and a stone flag floor. There is a nice brick fire that had a fire roaring - much needed on the day. I didn't see a TV and the music was general and at a decent level. The walls had some old photos on and there were a few jugs and ornaments. There is an area for pool and darts. They do food, but I cannot comment on that. The service was very friendly and a few locals seemed to be in. Beer; usual tap stuff, with Doombar, Old Spekky Hen and a pleasant Pin-up Red Head. There was also a real cider, Cornish Farmhouse, which I tried for a change and was also decent. A really nice pub, sadly perhaps a little opened-out for my personal taste, but still one to visit - especially with the family.

Bigger on the inside than it looks there is also a large garden and car park backing onto the railway.

The garden is quite bare & needs a bit of work, but the inside is a lot better. A large space split with screens actually makes a difference from what you would find if taken over by a big chain. Its not confortable as such, its all solid floor, wood chairs & tables but its a traditional unspoilt country inn with beams and wood around.

Menu is short & sweet and there are two real ales of average quality. Seems popular enough.

Sort of place that needs to be used as it shouldn't be lost
