“Lifesavers:)”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We went to the hit and miss after trying MANY pubs in the area that would not serve us food on a Sunday afternoon as we had just missed our chance.

We were greeted by the village peacock who I hope stays around that area as an attraction. The staff very very friendly as were the locals. The food was also fantastic.

It is true that the place could do with a bit of a refurb but everything else makes one overlook that.

“Could be so much more....”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

This place could be amazing, fab location but when you step in it is like going back in time but not in a great way. Food ok, we only had sandwiches tasted fine but presentation was very dated like the surroundings, also a tad unsettling we were they only people there on a Saturday lunch time. The toilets need a major overhaul and a deep clean too. Shame, could be a great country pub.

“Different bars for food and drink!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We were staying at the nearby Plough Lane Adult only caravan park, which is a 20 minute walk from the Hit or Miss. The pub is a very attractive old property with a welcoming atmosphere and good 'olde worlde' décor. Sadly, they employ a system where you have to order your food & drink at different bars!!
Why on earth the waitress cant take your drinks order as well as your food order beats me!! However, the food was good, hot and tasty. As we were staying nearby we were given a voucher for 20% off our food and drinks so all in all it was good value for a 2 course Sunday roast.

“Excellent find, a traditional village pub - just off the M4”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

Needed to meet someone at a convenient location and used my Places of East Just off the Motorway book (probably not its official title but something similar). The Hit and Miss seemed suitable and what a find it was. Friendly staff, lovely traditional village pub atmosphere and an excellent fish lunch - two had the fish and chips and said it was excellent and I had a very nice fish bucket - a shell fish platter in a, well, in a bucket ..... Only a couple of bitters on offer, but as with a comparatively small menu, better to do a few things very well than an array of mediocre. I'd definitely be back if I was in the neighbourhood, or if I can find a reason to be back in the neighbourhood.
