Very nice olde-worlde decor in this friendly multi-room pub. The menu looks good. I'm told they've increased the range of real ales since my visit.

Hand pump
A large nicely decorated knocked through one bar pub. The traditional interior is all fake I think. I visited on a Saturday morning and had the pub to myself for half an hour, apart from the friendly dog.
Recently they ran out of bitter on a Sunday afternoon, I'm told.
In 2005 I received a report complaining of poor beer, poor food and poor service.

Red Cat Hotel

The plain traditional decor is well done in this pub with four rooms. The food looks good and the real ale is excellent. Some of the windows feature illuminated red cats, in case you can't find it in the dark!

Star Inn Seven handpumps, and my pint was spot on, in this pleasant popular pub. The menu for the restaurant looks good and it was very busy on a Sunday evening, with people waiting for tables.
