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

A traditional community pub in every sense of the word that appeals to the largest section of the local area. Situated on a modern estate, visitors will receive a friendly welcome from management, staff and locals alike. Up to four well-kept real ales are served from the L-shaped bar and often includes one session bitter, one or two LocAles and a Guest. These are supplied from a good cross section of breweries from either national, regional or local areas. All drinks are served in the cleanest of glasses, something which the licensees pride themselves on. The pub is a previous winner of the local CAMRA Branch's "Most Improved Pub of the Year" award and is supportive of the local community by running pool and darts teams and sponsoring a local boys football club. The licensees also pride themselves on their charity work and have raised and continue to raise, thousands of pounds for local causes and people in and around the community. There are two TVs that show sporting events (sometimes two different sports at the same time) or music videos. Children are welcome until the early evening. Entertainment, including some live music acts is available on Friday and Saturday nights, so the pub can get very lively at times. There is an outdoor seating area with wooden benches which can be accessed through the side entrance to the pub and also acts as a smoking area for those who wish to use it. This pub has featured in CAMRA's Good Beer Guide in recent years.
