Delightful small pub around 1/4 mile from the Trent and Mersey canal, as recommended by our 1992 Nicholson canal guide (!)  This pub has featured in the good beer guide since 2004 – 4 hand pumps on the bar with 3 beers on offer on my visit, which is pretty good for a Monday lunchtime!

I sampled ‘PGA’ (which I can’t find anywhere online!) – light and refreshing.  Home-cooked and locally sourced food was available to sample, so I went for the sausage and mash.  I was not disappointed:

My only minor gripe was that the menu didn’t state it came with peas and cauliflower cheese – not that was a big problem, I just can’t stand inaccurate menus (everyone has to have a little OCD in them!)

Very friendly, good beer and great food – a most excellent pub.

*Arty pints included as the landlord commented on my camera – “you don’t see many real camera’s these days do you…”
