I've been here off and on over the years, probably not as much as I'd like, but it is a fair drive for me so usually opt for something closer. Having said that it is actually just a quarter mile off a main road, but still manages to be in the 'sticks'. It isn't too touristy, and being (I believe) independent it retains a fair amount of charm, especially in the older section. It must be doing well as it's had an extension since I last went with bi-fold doors onto the rear garden.
The staff are polite and helpful, and the food has always been very nice. There's a wide selection to choose from and prices for mains start at about £10, and they are famed locally for emphasising country-type food such as rabbit and venison. However they also do vegetarian (which you wouldn't know from the sample menu on their website!): I had a lovely mushroom Wellington with dauphinoise, and it wasn't over spiced like so many veggie dishes are.
There's plenty of parking, and the loos are well maintained and clean (and there's a disabled loo by the entrance); but beware the exit as it's on a bend, the lane is narrow, and let's just say the locals know how to motor!
All in all would heartily recommend.
