Previous reviews stated the pub was under new management from October 2013, in fact the new managers did not start until 8th Dec, the old managers were still saying they were new in there. I ate there on the 10th Dec and had a fabulous meal, the new head chef is an excellent cook and We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The pub has a nice feel to it again, the staff were friendly and welcoming and the bar had a fair few locals drinking in it who seemed pretty contented. Would definitely go back, don't let previous comments put you off, this pub is definitely back on track!

We tried an evening meal to see what it was like following the change of management. The pub was very quiet (should have been a warning) and we received little by way of a welcome. The waitress didn't know what the soup of the day was and had to go and find out. The food was very average and the wine very expensive. Will not be returning until there is yet another change of management which I suspect won't be too long!

What a shame that a beautifully situated country pub fails to deliver.
It's interesting to note that since the pub's new landlord, many of the reviews suggest they are still finding their feet.
As a small group of 'Sunday Lunchers', we found the experience clinical and unfriendly. There was no greeting, warm or otherwise. The food was bland and in spite of us being told that the middle of the beef joint would be rare- as requested, it was overcooked, luke warm and poorly carved. The vegetables, presented in uniform pre prepared individual dishes, without garnish were quite minimal.In contrast, the desserts were generous,home cooked and delicious.

It is a shame that 'finding one's feet' should become an excuse for a lukewarm experience.

Visited today following a change of management and were very disappointed - agree with previous reviewers dated menu - little choice. There was no plolughmans available so settled for curry of the day and scampi (ordered taken at the table but no offer of drinks !) Food was good but this great little pub has lost all its atmosphere now - wont be going back. We were looking for somewhere to take a large family party but there wasnt even chicken on the menu.

I agree with a previous reviewer the menu took me back to the 70's, couple that with strange decor and unwelcoming staff that didn't seem to want to be there so we won't be going back.
