A return to an old watering hole of mine.

I came here with two old friends for a lunchtime drink and sustenance. I had chicken curry which was very good although a little short on the rice. My friends had scampi and hunters chicken, all followed by desserts and coffee. A good range of beers are stocked so no one should be disappointed. We... read more

First ever drink here tonight, probably the first of many to come. Lovely polite and presentable staff, magical (if remote!) setting. Perfect for a balmy August evening.

The staff here really do fall over themselves to be helpful. We did feel like we were regulars within seconds of entering the pub. The decor is in keeping inside with a lovely Olde Worlde feel, the gardens outside are vast, and the parking is enormous too. The food is reasonable quality wise, and pretty good cost wise. The portions... More

The pub itself is lovely and the ales were great, but the food was a disappointment and let down this reviewer. At £9.25 for a prawn and avocado sandwich, I expected more than granary bread sandwich, skinny french fries and brown wilted lettuce on my plate. The deep fried scampi had no flavour and our dessert of chocolate fudge cake... More

Took my wife mother in law here as we had driven past it on the way back from the airport the previous week and thought it looked good from the outside. Firstly the good points, it is pretty (from the outside) and they have excellent real ale in casks. Now the bad points. It is very shabby inside, my mother... More

Pub is lovely, the food, not so much. We paid what we would for a decent gastropub in the area, yet all dishes were clearly deep fried from frozen. This pub needs to up it's game to compete with others in the area.
