I like a good pub. It’s that simple. When I’m not working in this one, I’m usually sat in someone else’s. I talk about pubs with my mates and I love to visit pubs people tell me about. I like having fruitless conversations in pubs, and I like sitting on my own reading a newspaper in the pub. I get really disappointed with a poor pub.

I like atmosphere, and character, and fun.

So when I opened this place I wanted somewhere I’d go; good quality and interesting food, great service, well-kept ales (and if this means reducing choice to ensure quality then that’s what we do), staff who actually talk to you and remember your name.

A place that’s informal but professional, that may under promise but always over delivers. Somewhere you’d want to take your friends, or come on your own.

It’s really quite simple….a good pub.
