Alehouse WINNER - Martin and Webmaster

Martin and the Webmaster with the 2017 Award.



This is a place I was taken to when I was knee high to everything. Steeped in history: From a bare pounded soil floor back lounge with an ancient cut down oak tree stump as a table, to a modern relaxed restaurant pub. Filled with brewerania and memorabilia, including the original carved pub wood sign. A basic pub entrance with dining lounge to one side, it also has a restaurant at the back. Besides the great food, attentive & knowledgeable staff and the huge selection of bottled craft beers it also sports its own Black Mountain Brewery, serving small batch brews in the bar. A hidden gem.

From the minute you walk in there is a relaxed feeling and the attentive and knowledgeable staff will take care of you, be it great food or drinks, including many craft beers and one of Black Mountain Brewery's own brews. Well worth seeking out.
