- Doesn't take cards. A proper locals pub. If you're new they're likely to go quiet when you come in but only because they're working out how long they should leave it before starting a conversation.
- Wonderfully interesting interior. Unchanged for decades. Impressive pub mirrors. Only drawback is a lack of real ale.
- Brilliant local but remember to bring cash (doesn't take cards) and don't touch the wine- definitely a pint pub!
- Make friends with the locals' well-behaved Staffy dogs.
