Nice local boozer - well worth a visit! It is across the road from the Old Hall and you can wander between the twp and have a great time. The bar staff are young and friendly

Love it! friendly and comfortable. I am a local but I never feel strange going in by myself. That says a lot

Unimpressive food, stale smell in the air, and crotchety service. Safer to go elsewhere really. This place used to be a lot better before it changed hands a few years ago. Sad really, was a nice pub but not any more.More

Your unfounded, rude review is a greater reflection of yourself than it is ourselves, and undeserving of a response. I'm highly suspect that this is designed as a personal attack on myself and my businesses. The paper mill inn doesn't serve food, so demonstrates this...More

This pub is next door to the Old Hall Inn and shares the same management and beer range. We didn't get to try the food but the beer was perfectly kept and the staff good humoured. (We were on a stag trip) A good beer...More

Lovely refurbished traditional pub. Stone floors real fires and a good selection of Real Ale. Shame they don't offer a selection of filled rolls or snacks at lunchtime. I guess they don't want to compete with the old hall. Same ownership.

Thank you for your review. We concentrate our chefs on the old hall, as there would be insufficient trade at lunch for two pubs in a tiny hamlet, however, never say never. Thank you for your review and for your recommendation. Dan

This is the sister pub to the Old Hall across the road. The other does food, this specialises in well kept beer, generally around 7 different beers on tap and a bible of Belgian and other beers to choose from if you fancy a bottle....More

You have been fed inaccurate information, it was 1972... We love frank but he only gets to decide on whats showing on one of the TV's : ) Dan

This is where my hotel room was situated on the first floor just above the pub. Lots of people in the pub but could hardly hear anything. The pub downstairs was relatively small but cosy. Excellent place
