Good Pub Guide Recommended
The Key family continue to give a warm welcome as they have for many years at this beautifully kept coaching inn. The traditional main bar is cheerily chatty and cosy, with lots of well polished tables and chairs packed under its beams (some with farming tools), lanterns or horsebrasses and harness attached, as well as leatherette wall benches, and various sets of sporting prints and local pictures - look out for the original deeds to the pub. Tucked away at the front is an intimate little corner with some african masks, while on the other side of the room a passageway leads to a new dining area converted from the old coffee bar; background music. There may be prints for sale, and perhaps a group of sociable locals. They do several wines by the glass, along with Brains Arms Park, Rev James and SA, and a guest such as Sharps Doom Bar on handpump. The church here is well worth a look. The pub has no parking and nearby street parking can be limited.
