Proper pub. Good selection of real ale and eclectic lagers. When they wrote the definition of 'pub grub' in the dictionary, they were thinking of this. Stunning steak and ale pie: crisp pastry, fall apart beef, rich gravy. Chips. Combine good beer, good food and a real open fire and you have a good British pub which used to be the norm but is now only found in isolated gems like the Black Swan.
We stopped off at this pub on our way to dinner. I am a lover of a great gin and tonic and it seems that the bar man here is too! He mixed me a few great drinks but also took the time to tell me what each one was. The atmosphere in the pub was very relaxed and the staff were very friendly. What more can you possibly need from a pub!!
