We booked a table for 7 for Sunday Lunch during a weekend away. A lovely walk down to the pub and we were greeted with smiles from both staff and locals having their Sunday afternoon drinks. The menu had a good choice and there was also a specials board that provided more than enough to choose from. Portion sizes were... More

Very good mushroom starters, fish pie and gammon steak followed by diabetic ice cream. Big portions, well cooked, tasty and enjoyable with pleasant service and reasonable prices in an atmospheric country pub. Highly recommended.

We had booked a table for four and were the first diners to arrive on a Friday evening. Nice cheery open fire on entering with two or three individuals having a quiet drink. Young lady behind the bar took our drinks orders which were very slow in being prepared - one pint of Guinness in particular must have taken close... More

Good place in town for the thirsty walker - friendly atmosphere and good choice of bitter and lager, there is a good walk to be had doing the circuit of pubs in the town.

A lovely old country pub in the beautiful village of Cardington - you can feel the atmosphere as soon as you walk in through the door. We had a really good welcome from the landlord and the meals were very generous and nicely presented. We all had different meals - the fidget pie, game pie, burger and Thai curry and... More

It is a lovely old pub but the food was not as good as expected. It is the only pub in the village and was convenient for people staying or living nearby. We visited couple of times and decided to go somewhere else.

We had a decent pint here, sat out in the garden, although I received a rather frosty welcome from the landlady, in common with other contributors. The toilets here are something to behold, with a boarded up window and filthy hand towel. I hope hygiene standards in the kitchen are better.

Beautiful area, stunning village. BUT We have been to this pub twice and each time both the landlord and landlady have been unfriendly. Enjoyed our drink but would think twice about returning.
