Solid pub with friendly staff

Ate here recently and, after a nice welcome from the bar staff, found a good spot to eat in the rear room. Service was friendly in there too and the food was decent – nothing too amazing, but solid pub food. Selection of beers was good and the atmosphere was lacking pretension – just a relaxing pub... read more

A very quaint Village Pub with very good food, summer months you can sit in the large garden where there are quite a lot of tables parasols and bench seats where food can be purchased from the barbeque section, in the pub there are eating areas scattered around the pub, the food is of a good standard with a good...

We went as a family for Sunday dinner on the menu it said home made Yorkshire puds and fresh veg! And when it came out after an hour waiting all the veg and the Yorkshire pudding was from packet and still hard. Absolutely disgusting for the price, small portion suitable for a child and false advertising will not be going... More

We've eaten here before as we live in a near by village and the food has definitely improved a lot in the past year or two. We booked a family meal for 9 of us for my son's 21st and thoroughly enjoyed the good, the variety of beers, and the service. Amanda and the restaurant manager (Jan?) really looked after... More

This pub is shabby, it desperately needs refurbishing. The food is rubbish and not worth the wait. Where we sat was dark and dingey. The tables looked like they were ancient and not in a good way. We left feeling miserable as the pub is so depressing!!

I really don't understand the negative reviews about this pub. It's a lovely country pub serving good pub grub and good beer. What more do u want? The pub at the front is quite small and dogs are allowed in which puts me off eating in that bit, but it's nice for a drinks and there's a good size restaurant... More

Called in to the "Rock" on Tuesday for a well earned pint after my visit to the gym. I was suprised and exceedingly pleased to see Thaekstons Old peculiar on the bar. The pint was fantastic, will be back again this Tuesday

Sunday evening out - pub was quiet but we were told 40 min wait for food. 1 hour and 5 mins later. Despite being told by disinterested staff that 'it was the same for everyone' our food arrived, congealed gravy, frozen peas and soggy pastry - we left after 2 mouthfuls and won't be back!
