We stayed over a weekend with friends and found the rooms, food, beer and service to be exemplary. Any pub wanting to know how to improve their rating on TripAdvisor would do well to send their staff here for a weekend's exposure to some seriously good customer service. The food was also excellent. Their steak pie in particular is "something else" - truly worthy of the name "pie". So often these days a "pie" is merely "stew with fluffy pastry topping"; a travesty of the word pie - but this is the real thing. The beer is well-kept too - with excellent selection of English ales & continental beers available while we were there. The rooms were excellent too; with comfortable beds and quality fittings - all in good working order.
I've read the reviews below, and have to say that the parking thing is not a niggle - it's real. There's two parking spaces with the pub - plus restricted street parking (2 hours) on Station Road. The nearest 24hr car park is the far side of town. We had three cars, so did a "2 car shuffle" with no problem, but if you were the third couple to arrive with a car, you've potentially got a 15 minute walk from the car park! The best option is undoubtedly to come by train; the picturesque Victorian station is 10 yards from the pub front door.
Don't let the parking put you off though - this is a first class establishment; worth a bit of hassle for an excellent weekend.
