“Good, honest food and Ales”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We visited here whilst staying at church farm cl at Dethick,it is a pleasant short walk away. Our first couple of visits were for much needed refreshments after walking in the surrounding countryside which is stunning. After noticing how busy they were with food orders we decided to try eating here. We were not dissapointed and even though they were busy with a couple of large groups found the service to be excellent, the same can be said about the food. My husband had steak pie and chips, proper top and bottom pastry with plenty of good quality meat filling. I had the daily special of salmon fiscake with cheese and tarragon sauce, all piping hot and delicious. Although we were quite full we could not resist sharing the trio of ice cream which was lovely, if only we had room for some of the lovely desserts we saw coming out of the kitchen. In our opinion this is a well run establishment with "proper" chefs and well thought out menues and an amiable landlord, what more could you ask of a village pub? Would recommend and revisit. PS. Lots of locals here too which says a lot ( very friendly they were too)

“Really good food ....”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

A friend and I were looking for somewhere to eat in the early afternoon and came across the Jug and Glass at Lea. We were warmly welcomed and offered a lovely table in the dining room. The menu had a lot of choice and I was more than happy with the food that I ordered - as was my friend. The lasagne was very tasty and delicious. The service was quick and efficient with just the right amount of interaction with the waiter/ landlord. I had never been here before and didn't know that it had been upgraded and improved upon. I shall certainly recommend this pub as a place to eat and shall return again. It turned out to be a lucky find.

“A real country pub”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Been hiking past this pub quite a few times but always had sandwiches in rucksack to eat! Went for an evening stroll after heat of day had cooled (the walking around here is fabulous - totally unspoilt) and called in for supper and were very impressed. We had our boys aged 10 and 13 with us and found the pub to be a great balance between "real ale" coziness and decent, reasonably priced food. The beer was second to none, and the food portions generous (this really suits us as we don't usually have starters or deserts.)

The service was really friendly, and this, in our opinion, makes all the difference.

We will be back soon!!

“Restaurant quality food in a local Pub”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

A nice family atmosphere - with really fabulous steaks, one of the best I've ever had. Equal to some expensive restaurants. Too many chips, but some would like that. A very nice pub with nice people, good service & great food. Would recommend and re visit when in the area.

“Quality food delivered with great care!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Had a meal for eight family members celebrating the safe return of one of our member from service in Afghanistan. The service was superb, very attentive and nothing was too much. We must have driven them mad asking for more water every few minutes but if we did they never showed it! The food was of a good standard and all served piping hot and at the same time for a relatively large party was impressive. The wine list whilst not extensive had some good alternatives. Thank you, will definitely recommend to friends. One thing I did observe was the portions were sometimes too large, if it were my restaurant I'd watch those margins!
