We stumbled upon this place after failing to get served at The White Rabbit. A great Sunday Roast, they had run out of some meat (Lamb & Turkey), but we were quite late for lunch. The pork I had was beautiful and the gravy was possibly the best we have had. Will keep this place on the list of places... More

On another trip to the forest we stumbled upon this pub after driving by it most weekends. Not only was the atmosphere cosy and welcoming, the food was vertex tasty, extensive menu & extremely well presented and priced. Nice ales as well. 5/5 !!!

Me and my family ate here 3 nights out of 7 and enjoyed it each time. Good food, friendly staff and a nice friendly atmosphere. Dog friendly, children friendly and very comfy. Perfect for us as it was only around the corner from where we were staying. The pub was well kept and looked lovely with flowers and logs piled... More
