Local opinion seems to be that the owners are running this place in to the ground to sell up. It started going downhill six moths ago as the service deteriorated and they stopped doing food. They sold off the carpark and beer garden in order...More

Visited on the way home from Bombay Sapphire. In the middle of a building site with a note on the window stating they no longer serve food. As we were intending to have lunch we left.

A quick drink with friends in their very atmospheric pub. It's one of the last staffing in Whutchurch that used to have many. It's the only pub with a proper beer garden. Though that is being downgraded due to financial worries.

We had an average meal here a couple of weeks ago. It was not worth the money. See my previous review for what the place used to be. The owners have now decided to stop serving food, so you needn't really worry about the quality...More

Very disappointing roast dinner. The beef was over cooked and very tough. The creamed cabbage was completely inedible. The choice of vegetables was very limited. The service was incredibly slow, it took 25-30 minutes for each course to be served. We will not be returning.
