Cheerful town pub, relaxed and friendly, with generous helpings of good value pubby food, well kept ales and good-sized suntrap terrace

A real plus for the town, this busy pub has an open-plan low-beamed bar of proper character: you'll find tiles and bare boards, cushioned wall banquettes and settles around cast-iron-framed tables, and bar stools arranged along the counter where the friendly landlord and his staff serve Hobsons Town Crier, Sharps Doom Bar and Wye Valley Butty Bach and HPA on handpump. A back conservatory extension has darts, pool and a games machine; background music and big-screen TV for sports events. A big plus here is the sunny back terrace with picnic-sets, lovely hanging baskets, big pots of flowers, shrub borders and decking at the far end that gives an elevated view over the west side of town; children's playthings. Do walk up the street to see the ruined castle - its 20-metre Norman tower tilts at such an extraordinary angle that it makes the Leaning Tower of Pisa look like a model of rectitude.
