This used to be The Reindeer when I used it fairly regularly many years ago. It has seen better days and is a little rough around the edges. Still no real ale so we had a quick lager. Always a few friendly locals in.

A detached corner cottage style pub predominantly in undressed brick, with white bay windows and black paintwork. There is a patio at the back, but the car-park has been sold off for a house development.

The interior has an L-shaped room around the serving bar that has brown and white walls, with a white ceiling and a brown carpet, with brown seating. At one end of the room there was a dart board, with some maturer chaps playing and there was a TV, showing the BBC footy scores coming through. The music was mixed, but a bit on the loud side. The service was fine and the clientele locals - with pushchairs and toys at one end and some lads on the merry side down the other.

Beer; all tap stuff, no real ale. Had a Banks's MILD smooth which was OK.

A little un-nerving at first when we walked in and the piano-player stopped. The lack of any real ale and the loud music left me with a feeling of one for the locals I think.

WOW! A real local pub, with a real, genuine warm welcome - something that is not seen often these days. Not only that but the pub has been refurbished to an excellent standard. If you are passing, or live local to the pub you would be mad not to pay it a visit!
