I like this pub for its cosy atmosphere and charm. However am frustrated with the ungenerous attitude of the owners; often rude and surly, i've seen them charge customers £1 for a glass of soda water and refuse to let people use the toilets unless they have bought a drink.

I use this place a lot as I change buses here, and it does real ales. They are ever-changing so you won't know what is on until you arive (long gone are the days of Whitbread's trophy on fizz!!). Beer is always OK, and not too over-priced. Hermit's Cave has always been head and shoulders above the others (not tried the revived Tiger around the corner yet).

Amazing, atmospheric, no-frills pub where the beers are never bad. Great selection of ciders too. The wines are a bit hit and miss though.


I could not disagree more with Peppe, Hermit's is a fantastic pub with a great selection of beers and other drinks, I highly recommend it!
