We were made extremely welcome by the owner and felt immediately comfortable. The service was friendly and efficient, My wife and son had the sirloin steaks and remarked that the quality was the best they have ever had. Real Ales of excellent quality and a good bar scene where locals drink without having to eat a rarity these days.

Wow, what a great little pub! Their real ale is kept extremely well, the Hooky was fabulous. The menu is a bit on the simple side, but the quality of the food more than makes up for it. I had the enchiladas which were yummy and it's good to see something a bit different on a pub menu for a... More

Looking for somewhere different to go and enjoy a summers evening with the dog, found this place on a doggies welcome site. Just off the A421 and easy to find, had a lovely walk in the near surroundings of the pub, and settled in the garden on a picnic bench where 'open mike' night was being set up. Prices a... More

I did a search on trip advisor to find somewhere where we could get a decent roast, this place came up, the reviews were mostly good so we thought we should give it a go. We phoned and booked a table, which we needn't have bothered as when we arrived at 2pm on a Sunday lunch time we were the... More

Just moved to the area, and went in there this evening for what we thought would be a 'usual' pub meal. What we actually got was cuisine normally expected of a very posh (and expensive) restaurant. Everything was freshly cooked and arrived hot, and we didn't have to wait too long. Waitress was helpful and eager to please. A few... More

We visited here based on the reviews. We both ordered the burgets which were average but quite expensive for what they were. Lovely old pub just a shame about the decoration which doesn't really work. Black curtains over the fireplace etc. Not tempting enough to return.

On Saturday we decided to try out this pub for lunch after looking for a pub that allows dogs. As we don`t live far away and checking the website for details we got there at 1.45pm and the place was busy with people enjoying a drink or meal and chatting to us about our dogs. When we got to the... More

My partner and me went here for our anniversary. I had the lasagne which was amazing. The owner was very friendly. Ordered prawns for start but couldn't eat because of the eyes and legs. Felt so guilty because I'm not used to having these. ( Only the usual prawn cocktail) Owner was very understanding and we had a right laugh... More

Last came here about 7 or 8 years ago, in fact ate on a good few occasions. Change of owners meant that we didn't come back again until this week. Happened to be passing and thought we would call in for a lunchtime drink. The place hasn't changed much, still a traditional and very old building, quite small. Warm welcome,... More
