We decided on this place after looking on TripAdvisor for somewhere new to go as we are new to the area. The atmosphere was nice although we were made to feel awkard when we first walked in from the stares of the locals. The fire was on though so it had a lovely cosy feeling. The food was rather overpriced... More

Gorgeous pub and garden. Great lunchtime snacks from camembert to bloomer sandwiches. Love visiting this pub especially if the sun is shining!

What a superb find! We're staying overnight near Stansted airport before a flight in the morning and searched online for a good pub near to the airport and came across this great find. The first noticeable thing in this pub is the warm welcome - even to outsiders not lucky enough to be locals, the customer service is excellent and... More

A fine example of a welcoming English pub with log fires in the winter, a nice garden for the summer and good beer and food in a lively atmosphere but not so loud you cannot hold a conversation with your fellow guests.

This is a traditional pub with great pub food and a relaxed and warm atmosphere. Value for money with the food and the service was first rate. An added bonus is the games room with pool table, darts and table football. Plenty of outside seating in the pretty garden. Well worth the journey out of town.

4 of us went for a meal on a Sat night and it was excellent with very good service. It was a little noisy but that added to the atmosphere of the place. how good to see a busy business.We will go back.

If you live within 25 miles of this place i would recommend a ride out to investigate. The area is beautiful and can only be describe as quite essential English country, combined with a typical English pub that serves great pub food you really can not go wrong. I suggest you make a reservation, although the last time we were... More

Have recently moved to the area and am delighted with this pub. Great food, friendly landlord and staff and very accommodating for children. Best pub I've been to in years. Well worth a visit.

A little ways out in the countryside but well worth the trip. The atmosphere is warm and friendly as are the staff. Chris and his team provide outstanding food cooked to perfection from some of the normal dishes you would expect in a pub but at a considerably elevated level, to the more unusual (one of our party had ox...
