Two quiet snug rooms contain old post office equipment. Walls are hung with postal memorabilia including framed postage stamps and telegrams. Music in main room can be loud. There are board games, suitable for children, emphasising its family friendly nature. Food is good quality, with Sunday lunch a speciality. Dogs are welcome. Quiz night on Tuesdays. 5 handpumps.
