Whilst camping at the nearby Hollands Wood campsite we saw many recommendations for this pub. Upon arriving we saw it was a nice old pub and appealed to a range of ages. We got a nice little table and were pleased to be able to set up a tab and have a good meal. They seemed to be a little... More

We stopped here for lunch after a long walk and was not disappointed. The staff were helpful and friendly and the food tasty. The portions were very generous (ploughman's especially) and arrived quickly. Everything a pub lunch should be!

Nice old pub but very noisy as a football match had encouraged the fans to stay on into the evening. Although they were in the next bar could still be heard. Service was very slow. Another couple cancelled their order and left. We hung on and enjoyed our food.
