A deceptive pub this. Looks quite nice from the outside and the decor is pleasant. During my visit, which will be my last, a wedding was in progress. They had a lovely band playing, which was quite loud admittedly, but bands are a bit loud, and it wasn't that bad. As nominated driver I tried to buy a pint of coke, about 1.30 in my own local, was told that they only did half pints, and then charged me 2.05 for a half pint glass, thats eight quid for the equivalent of a 1.89 bottle.

We decided to leave because and find another pub of the prices, The beer was just as relatively expensive. I took a quik trip to the loos and overheard a staff member telling one of the wedding party that unless the band stopped playing they would shut the wedding down and evict the wedding guests who were staying at the adjoining hotel from their rooms. This was at about 9 o'clock. So not late at all

It is no wonder that more and more people are drinking at home with pubs being run like this. from this experience I would give this pub minus 2 out of 10. Quite a shocking attitude, and obviously out to make as much money as possible
