Hand pump
The plain bar side is a little worn, but clean and tidy, while the lounge looks more salubrious. When we asked for bitter in the bar we were not offered the cask beer and it was only later we spotted the operational hand pump in the lounge, so I cannot comment on the quality of the ale.
Now closed.
