“Solid choice”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

Atmospheric village pub, mix of traditional features and some unusual art deco(-ish) decor. Good food and a varied menu, with a decent selection of vegetarian options. Efficient service. Wine list covers all bases. Express menu in particular is very good value and provides a nice range of options. Solid choice.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Fantastic food, lasagne and steak and ale pie were lovely. The express menu was great value too, £7.95 for one course. The service was very friendly and the atmosphere was very welcoming. Overall a great experience, we will definitely be back.

Reviewed 27 December 2013

Our 1st visit as a family group on Boxing Day. Pleasantly surprised Service was excellent & the food was good. Menu is limited especially for vegetarians however they will offer other options if asked. Nice unpretentious surroundings. Awe would be happy to visit again

“Odd experience”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We visited this pub for a quick drink at about 6.30 on a Tuesday evening on the way home,as we had never been in.
Decor is slightly eccentric,some extraordinary wallpaper in the dining room.
We went into the smaller bar area.Several female staff all in black,one blonde in an extraordinarily short skirt .
As soon as they knew we weren't eating,they lost interest in us. None of them spoke to us after we had our drinks,including when we were leaving.
Three guys were sitting at the bar,the youngest of whom liberally spattered his conversation with swearing as we sat down. This was especially odd given the general ambience of the place and,to be fair,he was quickly rebuked by one of his co drinkers.
There was a group of early evening drinkers in the other bar who were well known to the staff and a couple of people eating.
The combination of the decor and the service would be enough to put me off.
