What is good about this pub?
The landlord is really good because he is always happy to have a laugh. The pub is very friendly and the atmosphere is always good. It is a good footballing pub too, so there is always a bit of banter.
How does this pub compare to others in the area?
I have never been to a pub like this one before, you can come in and the landlord would be happy just to make you whatever food you want, it is such a friendly place.
Is it a busy place?
It is always quite busy but it isn’t overcrowding either.
How long have you been coming here?
Since about 1975, and it has changed a lot since then. It used to be completely different a few years back, but since the landlord joined it has had a real change and it is a very nice pub.
How often do you come here?
Only about seven nights a week.
Do you have a favourite seat?
Right here, by the bar.
