My better half and I went for his birthday lunch there just before Christmas (when our other choice for lunch was closed). Hadn't been there for several years and were not impressed back then, however this time under the new owners things had significantly improved. Much husband's steak was done exactly as he asked for it (a rare thing, no pun intended) and I had a chicken dish which was equally good. Just pub food, but properly prepared and delicious. The decor is very dated, which the new owner acknowledged when we chatted, but they are in the process of updating that aspect too. Even if they don't update the decor, the pleasant country views and good food are enough to ensure we'll go back again.
