Olde English pub which is noisy and the locals treat you like a local. Great for dinner in winter as there are not many places open over winter.

We were passing through Renwick on a business trip, as we do regularly. This was a freezing night and the village was quiet except... here was this wonderful pub with an olde English theme. Furthermore a warm welcome from staff and a wonderful big open fire. We were quite hungry and therefore thoroughly appreciative having enjoyed a delicious "Hot Pot"... More

We stumbled across this gem when out walking on a Sunday night and looking for a light meal. Very good, fresh pub food, snappy service and a friendly ambience. Our waitress was from Germany and was charming and attentive. They also do a great coffee!

Fabulous old English Pub in Renwick. We were a group who all dined one recent Sunday night. Food was fabulous fire was roaring. And there was a convivial group in the garden bar.

This has got to be the best English Pub outside of UK (and better than a lot in it) and they have just started it. Brilliant atmosphere, a good selection of Beers, good Pub meals and really friendly helpful staff. If you want some of the meals adjusting to yr preference they are usually happy to help. Could do with... More

I had the pork pie which was from the famous Burleigh cafe in Blenheim. It was very tasty. A few of the others had the lamb shanks and a hot pot. There was nothing left on our plates... More

We arrived for Sunday lunch. There was a band playing - which drowned out the small pub. A little too loud for the size of the establishment. The pub is pleasant and laid out nicely. Looks authentic and cozy. I ordered a guiness and black - but the barman had no idea what i meant. (Not very British!). We got... More
