What an absolute Gem of a place.
Food - Start with the best. I must admit I've eaten here many times. I will always go back because the quality is so high for the prices you cannot get better anywhere in Warwickshire for my money. Always a good selection of pub classics and a monthly / seasonal menu with plenty of choice. Never had a bad meal here.
Drink - Good selection of Ales, Beers and Spirits. Lots of Whisky Choices for those who know their stuff and even a great pint of Guinness (The fact that the Landlord is Irish might help). Not the cheapest but still good value. Remember this is a village pub not wetherspoons
Space - Not the biggest but always room for you in here. I would advise making a booking especially on the themed nights or on a Sunday for the Roasts. Plenty of room out front which is great in the summer. Free parking available in the local vicinity.
Atmosphere - Always a warm welcome. Staff are friendly and will do what they can to accommodate you. Not sure about what some of the other reviews have said here. Quite the contrary to what I have experienced!
Overall if you are in the Stratford area this place is definitely worth a visit. Won't cost you too much in a cab back to your hotel / house and you can always have a walk up to Alveston. If you are on holiday try and stray from the touristy gastro pubs that line Sheep Street and give this place a whirl!
