I have visited this pub a few times over the years and it just seems to be coasting - it used to be fantastic .. it has a great location on the common and is a really attractive place, but it lacks any real love, which shows in the rather shabby appearance inside. The menu is a bit dull but... More

After taking a drive and stopping at this pub, which looked very cosy and welcoming ended up not so welcoming. We had a pint of lager and decided to stay for another, after purchasing our lager left our table with nearly full pints to go outside. We were away from the table for about 5 minutes on our return our... More

First time at this pub/restaurant very popular with walkers and because of its location on Heath common, very popular with horse riders. Set in a beautiful location with a very appealing look to the pub/restaurant. We visited as a family on a Sunday with the weather outside being sunny and a mild temperature. The pub was extremely busy with long... More

Not been here in years but after moving back to the area we decided to give it a whirl with friends who were staying with us. Overall it was a mixed experience. We arrived to be told that we couldn't be seated in the restaurant as booked (almost 3 weeks before!!!) as there was a birthday party in there who... More

Popped over for a drink having heard some good reviews. Pub is placed in a lovely countryside surroundings and has a lot of potential but the place itself isn't best. It's very cramp but we managed to get a table, not a clean one though. Trying to enjoy your drink at the table covered with empty glasses and left overs... More

We arrived for mid-week lunch with our well behaved dog - only allowed to sit in a tiny snug on our own with pretty grim loud piped music. Ordered Steak Pie which was OK if you like lots of thick sticky gravy under the crust. The portion was more than generous. Quantity rather than quality! As always enjoyed the Yorkshire... More
