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

A community based, welcoming local, dating from the 1830s, there are two bars. The name harks back to wartime as Australian soldiers billeted nearby described the pub. It has a loyal core of locals many of whom gather for important sports events shown in one of the two bars. There is plenty of couch seating around tables; patrons often organise card games taking advantage of this layout. It is a Harvey’s tied house serving three ales from that brewery. Apart from typical snacks, pizzas and warm flat bread are on offer throughout opening hours.
