Wonderful backstreet pub of the type almost of myth these days. Approach to an imposing Victorian building with the Home Nations flags fluttering outside. Enter to a large room with a high arch where presumably a divide once was (and would be beneficial to reinstate). There’s also a small rear overflow room. Pleasingly basic feel without being austere; worn herringbone flooring, green and cream walls, curtains. Covered pool table, darts and an upright piano. A rare 11am Sunday opener and at quarter past it was already getting busy with a nice locally atmosphere. Eight pumps with six on; 2x Dartmoor, Salcombe Storm Watch, Branoc and 2x Hanlons, Port Stout (NBSS 4) and Yellowhammer (4). Spoke to the landlady who has owned the place for 27 years and it shows. A real gem and worth a special trip to do.

Unspoilt traditional backstreet locals' pub with a very good range of beers. The bar is in one large room, with a small room to one side housing a dartboard and TV. The ales included some good local ones - the sampled O'Hanlon's Port Stout was in very good form (Cask Marque certified).

A traditional brick built, corner pub, with black paintwork

The interior was open plan with a pool area and dartboard. The decor was cream and red panel. It had a nice wood bar and wood floor. There were nice local photos and prints on the walls. There was Sky TV and the background music was supplied by Heart FM (a little too loud). There wasnt food on as i remember. The service and locals seem friendly enough to me.

Beer; usual tap tosh with Bay's Gold and Branscombe Branoc on handpull - the Bays was a little lifeless.

The pub is traditional and i really enjoyed it - the beer wasnt the best on the day, but i would return.
