Booked a birthday party here based on the menu online. Unfortunately we didn't realise that the menu we were looking at was the valentines day menu. So the one we got wasn't the same. However when asked they were happy to prepare something off menu (as long as they had the ingredients). When we arrived, we were slightly worried as... More

Stopped here as visiting relations nearby. Pub is just of roundabout J7. A small place popular with locals. Reserved a table for Saturday lunch and glad we did as they we all reserved. The pubs serves traditional meals but done very well. I had the homemade burger which was plump and served in a bun with tomato, melted cheese, bacon... More

I read the last review and thought just that - some people will never be pleased! But hey ho this is life and I guess you win some, you lose some. I did feel compelled to write my own review about this lovely little pub though. Unlike others I find the place hard to fault! I have eaten here many... More

Dry game pie. Ditto half chicken served, weirdly with salad. Great Mole Trap beer. Avoid the overpriced food.

I only live 5mins down the road, which is handy, considering just how good this place is. Visited countless times over the years, because of the fantastic atmosphere, perfect staff, friendly-and-knowledgeable owners & quality of food and drink (couple all of this with the beautiful surroundings - it's fantastic). As somebody who likes a proper ale, it's always good to... More
