Friday evening meal was a real treat after 14 weeks at home, really good system for social distancing, excellent choice of beer, great food and friendly service. Locally sourced steak, well cooked and presented, in a wonderful thatched pub, doesn't get any better. Thank you.

I am in the process of moving to Austrey so have been checking out the local area and found this little gem ! Friendly staff, great food, lovely land lady Pam. Would really advise trying out the Sunday roast. I had the beef & ham combo was delicious and reasonably priced

Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon with friends who are moving to the area. Was met with a friendly Bar man who helped me choose a nice pint of mild (quite uncommon to get hold off nowadays) and the landlady even came out to have a chat with us about the local area. A lovely afternoon enjoyed by all. And also dog friendly!
