Okay...

Nice pub to visit..friendly staff and beer okay. ..food a little overpriced for what you get and not the best quality. .all in all okay if you want a pint and pub meal..don't expect anything special.

The stunning steak and stilton baguette, simply wowed me! The mountain sized potion arrived with the succulent steak cooked to perfection! The Stilton was beautiful melted and complemented the steak well. Service was quick and with a smile! Great recommendations from the bar staff for the pink lemonade, which is a must have! Great job, even greater pub and people!... More

This was our third visit on the way home after staying in Burford. Food has always been good with very generous proportions and they sell Peroni and White Zinfidel on draught. Looking forward to our next visit.
