Hidden gem! Amazing food and service, highly recommended.

Was recommended when looking for somewhere local for a last minute meal with a friend and wasn't disappointed!

Haven't been here for a sit down meal but intend to in the future. Always a lovely atmosphere, especially great in the colder months when you can cosy up by the open fire! We have had nibbles with our drinks - delicious rustic cheese chips to warm our bellies. Always a pleasure to pop in for a pit stop!

If you are looking for a well presented traditional country inn providing excellent food, well kept real ale and not overpriced priced wine, an open log fire and a warm welcome while you are in the beautiful Forest of Dean (near Symons Yat) this is the one for you. Good quality at reasonable prices and a friendly team. First class... More

A real forest welcome awaits all the family, four legged ones included. Great food, huge portions and excellent value for money. Leave room for the chocolate and salted caramel brownie, it's amazing

Good local cider, pub grub and a lovely open fire. What more could you want from a local pub? A friendly welcome was also had.

We had a Sunday lunch for 8 prone recently at the new inn whilst staying at the forest holiday resort. We were not disappointed with the quality, price or service. If I lived locally I would be a definite regular at this lovely little pub. Well done keep up the good work.

Visited this very nice establishment today. Very friendly staff, a good selection of beers (although none local) and a varied menu. No idea how they can make a profit though as the portions sizes are monstrous. One meal would be enough for two people of normal appetite. Food was well cooked and served with a smile. The venue is cosy... More

Was there with a large group of 16 for Sunday Lunch. Was very impressed with quality of food and level of service. They know how to handle large groups and did it very well.
