A real old-school Irish pub this, with a few very traditional rooms around the cash only main bar. I sat in the Kennedy/Arctic Monkeys room and made use of the jukebox. Moonshine and Barnsley Bitter the only ales on but condition was fine and I really did like the pub, it just gave me a nice warm feeling.

I have to say I had a great visit here on a late Saturday afternoon. This slightly eclectic pub with its wonderful period interior has been very well described by PSM below and when I arrived it was humming with life in every area except for the back room on the right.
The reason was that there were several musicians with various instruments in situ in the small left hand front room and they took it in turns to traverse the corridor to play in the front right hand room. Those wishing to listen and appreciate the music formed an audience in the front room, those wishing to listen to the music but still hold a conversation with friends were crammed into the corridor and those not interested in the music at all were all in the small outside area at the back as it was still a decent enough weather day at this point.
After listening to a couple of folk songs played and sung with feeling in the front room I decided to retire and take my half into the completely empty back room for some silent contemplation along with JFK and the Arctic Monkeys.
For my visit it was also the turn of the Tetleys Bitter to be off so I finally succumbed and tried my first half of the weekend of the Stancill Barnsley Bitter which was exceptionally average to say the least.
But for some pubs it’s not just about the beer, and I would be more than happy to visit here again, even if it was just with a glass of lemonade.

My first visit for three years or more, though I used to like this pub and called in once every to or three months. On my visit today I was reminded why I had stopped: the beer quality is just not up to scratch. There are three hand pumps squeezed onto the stretch of bar in the drinking corridor, with a couple more for display purposes only on the bar in the snug. Tetleys Bitter was off, which left Abbeydale Moonshine and Stancill Barnsley Bitter. On reflection, my habitual avoidance of Moonshine left me with a very poor half of Barnsley. It was very frothy coming out of the pump, but when it came to drinking it was flat and on the turn; not undrinkable but not at all pleasant either. I didn't complain because I'm not a fan of Moonshine, so I just bore with it. The Kennedy memorial room was seemingly unchanged and it was nice to be back here - just a shame about the beer.
