Had a few beers and a Sunday roast in the well kept beer garden. Very welcoming and goos for families and pets. If you are in the area, definitely worth a visit.

This is a pub on the edge of the Forest of Dean and a good place for lunch, dinner or a drink. It welcomes children, dogs and muddy boots which I think is a good thing, given where it is in the world. However, this does place some limitations on the décor and the wooden floor, while easy to keep... More

this pub is close to the forest of dean forest holidays resort. We got a warm welcome and a very fresh, home cooked sunday lunch at a very reasonable £8 or so each. The service was efficient and friendly, the vegetables fresh and plentiful. All in all a pleasant place for a family sunday lunch.

Nicely decorated, lovely fire, great food, decent sized portions, able to accommodate a table of 14 at short notice and all-in-all great value for money. Couldn't complain about anything! Just what was needed after a slightly cold, very wet and uncomfortable day of camping/walking.

A cosy country pub with friendly staff. The food was reasonably priced but of disappointing quality: the burgers were very basic, no frills , and the lasagne was saturated in cheese with very little meat or pasta. Would come here for a drink in the future but not to eat

We we're from the local campsite which they recommended this pub. The menu has a lot of choices. I ordered the homemade lasagne which you could tell it was homemade. My dad ordered a steak which came with a pepper sauce and he said it melted in his mouth. The pie of the day that my mother ordered, was a... More

We visited Good Friday lunchtime for a bar snack. We chose cheeseburger, fries, coleslaw, salad & home made relish. Very disappointed. The meal was served without the coleslaw & relish! My salad (wasn't a salad just a bit of garnish) was dry& limp. My partners garnish looked a lot fresher & consisted of different ingredients so I think my garnish... More
