This place clearly trades on being slightly better than the other pub in Horton-in-R, and having a huge semi-captive audience of walkers and campers.
The first thing we noticed, apart from the fact that it was extremely busy, was the vast array of petty signs saying "Please do not..." with basic obvious things like "Please do not eat your own food in here", which was not a welcoming touch.
The food was average. That's about all I can say for it. The chips were out of the freezer, the chicken pie turned out to have toadstools in it (which wasn't mentioned on the menu) and was a cheating pie rather than a proper pie. Portion sizes were OK, but nothing special, and given the price I would have expected either better quality or bigger quantity. Soft drinks are offensively expensive.
While there is outside seating, it's a feeding frenzy for midges on a warm evening – not the pub's fault, I know, but if you're looking forward to relaxing in the beer garden then make sure you've doused yourself in Deet before going outside.
