Location and contact

Come and enjoy our cosy country pub nestled in the picturesque Warwickshire village of Ladbroke. Savour your drink and enjoy a catch up with friends in our character bar, packed full of rustic charm, with exposed timber beams, open fires and tweed clad furniture. Our well stocked bar boasts real ales, craft lagers and ciders, and a handpicked selection of the finest wines. On a cold wet day, what could be better than sipping a hot cappuccino made from freshly ground coffee, whilst sitting by an open fire.Our forte though is great food! This, coupled with our contemporary country style restaurant and attentive service, make the perfect ingredients for a top notch dining experience. So, whether

Simply put this out of the way pub is an amazing find. We will definitely return. The beer was good (so I’m told,) the food was delicious and the service was friendly but not intrusive.

This pub is great. We meet there as a "Ladies Wot Lunch" and every time we go it is consistently good. The gluten free menu is excellent and the service is good. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Visited for dinner on Saturday. Good was acceptable but not excellent with some portions too large for the average diner. Service was O.K. to start with but, as the evening progressed, deteriorated. The restaurant was not busy and the waitresses seemed to be more interested...More

Just been again for a Christmas lunch and despite being a large group of 30+, all went well. Food was tasty and hot when served. I heard no complaints from any of our group so well done guys. Look forward to coming again one evening.

Rather noisy in the rear conservatory because of poor accoustics - groups, large and small talking normally, but the combined effect was a wall of sound. Waitress never asked if everything was ok with the meal - despite asking other groups. Lamb shoulder was not...More
