“Evening meal”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Have just visted this lovely gem of a pub,on ashby high street. The evening meals are served from 4pm onwards are are excellent value for money. I enjoyed the braised steak and the plate was full and the food was served piping hot,had trifle for pudding and really enjoyed it.if booking a table I suggest you try and get one in the conservatory as can be a bit of a squeeze on the main pub if more that 4 in your party.

“Great food, great service and great atmosphere!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Visited recently for a work night out and was really pleased with my choice of food. It was tasty and plentiful and good value for money. The choice of beers and ciders is fab too!

“A drinkers paradise!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

One of the best pubs around for miles.
The exceptional choice of beers make this place. The choice of ales is changed on a regular basis so you are actually spoilt for choice. They don't come cheap but are kept well so never a bad pint here, so you get what you pay for.
Meals are home cooked with a good choice and the portions are large too. It does get very busy especially at lunch times so always book a table to avoid disappointment. An excellent atmosphere is always guaranteed.

“Not enough stars to rate this for value and quality”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Busy little eatery so book early to avoid disappointment. Home cooked food to a great standard. Not slow in getting the food to you which was surprising given how busy it was!
We paid £6.95 for two courses and thought it would be tiny portions. Wrong! My prawn cocktail was packed full and my friend's mushrooms were plentiful. We both had the steak pie for main which was so filling I had to take some meat home for my dogs ha!
The trip of sausage looked beautiful. Veg was lovely.
Can't rate this enough for a good value for money meal! Child friendly.
