Me and my husband came across this pub while in emsworth, it's a very small pub but very welcoming. I had a roast pork and he had chicken, both meats were cooked perfectly, a wide range of fresh vegetables and the roast potatoes were really fluffy and crispy.

This is a lovely local pub, a large choice of ales available, and great food! Found the pub by chance on a dog walk and will defiantly return!

Cosy Bar with open fire and a warm welcome to match. The food really was like a home cooked meal. Lots of lovely vegetables and piping hot. Big portions and great value.

Stayed in Emsworth couple of days so had chance to sample most of the superb Ales this pub had to offer. Very busy, lovely log fire, great atmosphere & great food. We had a lovely lunch of a Treagust saugage baguette and their homemade soup. Good portion and reasonable priced washed down with lovely pint of Oliver's Island

Have just come back from our Monday regular Pie night. Peter and Dawn are such a lovely couple. The bar staff, Harvey and Zoe are great. We both had Steak and Ale pies tonight. Really good value. I had a couple of pints of Oliver's Island in perfect condition. Proper Pub with a lovely atmosphere.
