This pub closed its doors in the middle of May and joined the growing band of establishments now shut. Last time visited was in Febrauary when the new mamnagement team was making a determined effort to get more bottoms on seats. Regretfully, this effort did not bear fruit.

Nice village and the pub has been done up well but the owners look like they are doing it for a hobbie.

Mother's Day visit was enjoyable. Two areas serving food, restaurant and bar. We sat in the bar area which was comfortable. Staff are friendly, menu not over large and the food was 'home cooking' in style. Pub is homely and relaxed. We would like to go back to experience what the pub is like in the evenings, as the fire... More

We love this pub, we often go for meals or just a drink. The food is always excellent and such good value, especially Wednesday sausage nights! It is also a great venue for parties, we held our Silver Wedding here in September, and the sit down meal for 80+ was amazing. The staff are very friendly and always helpful. Do... More

Excellent food, great value for money and prompt friendly service. Well worth a trip to this characterful old pub in a very pretty village. Also good variety of cask beers and very cosy bar.

I dont understand why this place isnt packed out every night - the food is fantastic! we live a couple of miles away and have 3 other pubs closer than the dial, but chose to come here because its unpretentious, with great food and beer. Really good, much better than the Red Cow, Prince William or (probably) the phesant.

This pub has a great setting in a really pretty village. It's a very old building with a modern dining room extension (plus modern kitchen!) cleverly blended into it. There is a large garden, a terrace with tables and a willow tree. The pub wins awards for its well-kept beer. They serve Adnams and various guest beers changing from time... More

What a lovely place! Beautiful on the outside stunning on the inside. Staff were friendly. Food was excellent. I had Pulled Pork which I'd once had in USA and I have to say the pubs was better! I would defiantly go back, good food at good cost with a friendly atmosphere.
