Pleasant Country Pub with good service

The menu is basic pub grub - which was very welcome after a long walk. The service was good and quick. The welcome warm.

Went here with a large group for sunday lunch as we were not disappointed the meal was lovely. Really nice puddings and the meat was melt in the mouth.

Popped in for a lunch whilst waiting for our forest holiday accommodation to be ready. We sat outside and our 7 year old twins headed straight to the enclosed wooden play area. The lady at the bar was helpful, friendly and attentive. Our meals came quickly and all generous portions. A very enjoyable visit!

It's good! The ambiance, the location, the cleanliness, the cosyness: even the parrot that greets you as you step into the bar from the car park! And the food didn't appear to have come out of a bag!

I had a lasagne it was lovely. I enjoyed it but i thought it was slightly expensive for what i recieved. The outside seating area was lovely my daughter played in the park waiting for our food. The inside looked very old and dated.

Staying close by in the Forest of Dean, we tried this place on 2 occasions for dinner. First visit we arrived to find they had no idea of our reservation which we had made by phone that same day. No problem, we sat in the lovely garden and had the fish and chips, which was perfectly good - nice big... More

The setting is lovely. The drinks were alright (a little more selection of wine would go a long way). Then we wanted food. We were told that the kitchen was too busy for us to look at a menu. It was surreal. Eventually one customer just took a menu and we passed it around to other customers like kids passing... More
