A well-presented traditional pub run by Hall & Woodhouse (the brewers of Badger Beer).
The food (served noon-3pm and 6pm-9pm Monday to Thursday, and noon-11:30pm Friday) is very good, but as the pub is popular at lunchtimes it can be hard to find a table, and during busy times food can take a while to arrive. However, this just gives more time to drink the excellent beer, particularly Stinger.
In a previous life the pub was a Young's pub, "The Three Cups". Although the pub was extended when the name and brewery changed, the quality of the refurbishment work is such that it gives the illusion that the pub has been that way for many years.
Note that it's not open on the weekends.
