Obviously good ale... but this pub serves food AND allows dogs into the bar and onto the seats. Disgusting!

I had heard very good things about this pub. I was very disappointed: long waits at the bar, dirty, rude staff with unclean clothes, greasy hair and looking under the influence of substances.
My party all ordered meals together. However, as the dirty chef put the meals on the table it was announced that my choice had run out. It was difficult to get a refund for my non-existent meal. Also no apologies, and poor response from management.
Can't understand why people on some review sites rave about this pub.

I look forward every year to visiting during my real ale trips. Welcoming pub, friendly, knowledgeable hosts and bar staff. Terrific selection of good quality, well-kept ales, served in proper glasses.
Food is excellent and reasonably priced. Marvellous beer garden and have enjoyed the quiz nights and beer festivals.
If I had to pick one pub in the world to call my local, it would be this one!
A real oasis for the discerning drinker.

Have to say I use this pub as my local now and it is a joy to do so. From the traditional decor, great selection of real ales and porters, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful staff, to the "no swearing" policy, it is just a pleasure to enjoy a pint in here.
Plus there's no annoying music, televisions or slots/quiz machines to drive you mental. It's a pub I intend to keep visiting for a long time to come.
Owners Trevor and Lewis can pat themselves on the back. Oh and the floral beer garden is a delight to sit in. Cheers guys.
