See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This attractive red brick one-room pub was bought by Joules brewery in 2012. It has subsequently undergone a stylish refurbishment with oak floors and wood panelling throughout. Notable features are the etched mirrors and stained glass windows depicting other hostelries in the Joules estate. A large upstairs function room ("The Slaughtered Lamb") has received an equally lavish makeover while at the front is a small terraced veranda ideal for late afternoon sunshine. Pies are always available and a traditional roast on Sunday. The pub hosts a popular quiz on Thursday and live Irish music on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month.
