Always a great place to eat and drink. Mark is a great landlord and always very friendly to all. Would recommend to anyone for either a few beers or the food, which is yummy. I particularly like the gin glasses :-)

We have just had a superb Sunday lunch. Despite us being half an hour late, nothing was too much trouble. All of our meals, which ranged from roast, to steak and kidney pudding to Lasagne were perfectly cooked and tasty. The puddings were excellent too....More

Popped in on a detour from the m4, was heartened to find this place on entering the village. A real pub feel, good honest beer and a really stunning, proper homemade burger- will definitely be back

We visited this place with colleagues after work but were not impressed with food. Cold and over cooked but lacked flavour. Service was good but I guess the kitchen team dropped the ball.

Dropped in at 1600 and pleasantly surprised to see that the full menu was still available! Was served very proficiently and efficiently. The food was very good as was the wine list. Would go back at the drop of a hat!

Four of us dined at 1pm which appeared to be a very busy spell but the staff coped very well. The wait at the bar wasn't very long and the staff member acknowledged us as we came to the bar. No delay in taking the...More
