See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Grade 2 listed two bar pub with a traditional feel welcoming locals and visitors alike including being a regular haunt of the local sports teams. The front is a mix of plush furnishings and wooden seating with a centre piece of a stove fire with a sports television above. To the left is a darts board with a halo. The walls are adorned with a mix of brewery memorabilia and old photos. The back bar is larger with the low beamed ceiling being more noticeable and a second stove fire. There are three televisions, a pool table and juke box. There are a number of pub teams including darts and dominoes adding to the community atmosphere. The grounds include 5 locally built wooden camping pods for those interested in glamping. Visitors to the Gents may find it a nostalgic experience due to the displays of old cartoon strips on the walls (see picture). The pub also participates in the annual Bishop's Castle beer festival held each July. Note that the pub may close earlier on Sundays.
