Excellent pub food and drink with even better hospitality

Me and my fiancé went for dinner tonight, I misread a sign on the door and thought no food on tonight the lady ran out when she see us leave and said food is on!

Stopped for lunch. Very quiet and old quaint pub, but the food was a bit disappointing. Puddings certainly bought in and were over priced. Main course, reasonable selection. This pub with some creative energy could be great. Bar man full of some type of humour :-)

Great food, lovely atmosphere....would definitely visit again!! In walking distance from Horwood House which is where I was staying although had to be careful as part of the walk is down country lanes with no pavements. Took about 20-30 mins. The chips here were gorgeous - proper hand cut job!! All in all a good night !!

Visited on a Thursday as walk in trade. Few tables in restaurant but we chose to sit in the bar and eat. very friendly waitress and locals made us feel at home. Food was simple but very good, honest pub grub but not gastro pub, and all the better for it. Unusually for me had pudding, Key Lime pie which... More

We stopped here for dinner whilst staying at a nearby hotel. The team were incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent - clean plates all round and the steak was cooked to perfection! Thank you for an enjoyable visit. We will definitely return if we are in the area again :)

En route from East Anglia to the Cotswolds saw the pub signed from the main road. Went into the pretty village to find a lovely unspolt pub serving excellent ales and a great snack lunch too.

Stayed locally in Horwood House, saw this pub on the way into the village. Walked there from the hotel three nights in a row, it was absolutely lovely. Maybe some more sofa seating but honestly the food, drinks and friendly staff made up for that by far. Couldn't rate higher. Would make this a must if nearby. What a pub... More

A good friend had her birthday in this pub the other day. What a lovely place with its open beer garden facing country greenery, very good food and friendly personnel. I loved just about everything because even though food presentation had its flaws, one has to be accommodating for the fact of pub dining. After all pubs have never been... More

Annette and her team know the art of hospitality. Great food, in a real pub. Beth extended the welcome, and Rob cooks up a real storm in the kitchen, the Ultimate Burger is my recommendation.
