Good pub! Good food!

Was a lovely place to meet with friends. The food and service were good and it was a perfect country pub to meet up and spend a long lunch catching up and eating great food!

We visited the the little brown jug with family. We reserved a table online, which was quick and easy. Once we got to the restaurant the table was ready and even asked us if we wanted to have a table made up outside. The food was lovely and the choice was sufficient. I would recommend the little brown jug but... More

Great food. Had the mixed roast which was perfect. Exactly what you want on a menu, I would have gone for the beef typically though in the mix the lamb came out as my favourite. Wife had the vegetarian risotto which she loved. Our little boy (18months) couldn't get enough of the rarebit starter too. We also finished off with... More

Went there with friends for a midweek lunch. There was only one space left in the car park so we thought "this looks busy, must be good". How wrong can you be , inside the place was almost empty and there were a few people in the garden. Shown to a dark corner table which we rejected for somewhere lighter... More

Food average, better pub food available locally, but the biggest thing was the poor service. Food took a long time and we repeatedly had to ask and chase up drinks. The first time we chased up drinks we were told that they were very busy and if we had ordered them they would be coming. No apology, no chasing them... More

Had a very late Sunday lunch here in June following a two family bike ride. Very bustling when we arrived, but pub was very accommodating of our late arrival. Great selection of bar snacks to keep us cheery whilst waiting for our email (mini salamis particularly popular). Good selection of beers- very wide ranging menu including a lot of Roast... More

My family and I have visited the LBJ several times, and enjoyed it every time. Yes, the food is very good, but the staff have really been the deciding factor in our return visits. We know some of them well, and they ask after missing members of the party. But I took my aunt to lunch yesterday. If this had... More

Went for lunch with my wife, 4 year old and baby and had a lovely lunch. Decent menu with well cooked food. The garden is just perfect, we could sit and chat whilst keeping an eye on the child playing on the tree house with slide. The staff were all really friendly and made us feel very welcome. In fact...
