“The best cheese n onion pie ???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

Came here on a wet lunch time to find a lovely old fashioned ale house with roaring fires and a great homemade and local menu. I had the cheese and onion pie and wow it was fantastic. We shall be back.

“Great Beer, Good Food but ..........”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Would agree with most things written about this place on here. The cask ale selection is great and the food tasty even if it tends to lean towards the pub grub side of things.Its a fairly unspoilt country pub set in picturesque surroundings. However a note of warning! When the management says the pub closes at 2-30 on weekday lunchtimes it means exactly that! If you happen to order fairly late on you could find yourself literally accelerated through your meal in the management's haste to get the place clear by the appointed hour. A number of our party found their main course plonked down even though they were only halfway through their starter! All a bit amateurish really and it showed in other parts of the service presided over by fairly matronly staff. Only a minor grouse though.

Been to this pub many times, Excellent Staff, Food and Beer. The Landlady and Landlord could not be more helpful and responsive. Lovely location and a friendly atmosphere with many locals using pub (Always a good sign). Beer is exceptionally good.

“Terrible landlady...!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Been to this pub restaurant many times over the past few years as i live close by. The food is normally ver good hower on a recent visit with my partner it was well below standard. I mentioned this to one of the young waitresses who informed the chef. Two minutes later the landlady came over disagreed with everything i said, said that i had upset the watress and kicked us out??? I must admit that this didnt really come as a surprise as we have noted many times that the landlady appears to have a chip on her shoulder, never smiles or engages with the customer and is normally abrupt and unhelpful. As we were leaving a young couple at the table next to us said that they couldnt believe the way that we were spoken to by the landlady and were disgusted with her comments. A real pity really as the food and pub are normally very good. If you read this landlady you really need to go to charm school and learn some manners.

“Excellent food nice hospitality. Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

We found this by mistake because we were visiting another pub that we used to know. When we got there it had changed to a jumped up restaurant and expensive so we left and went to find a better place. How glad we were that we looked up the Swan with two necks in Pendleton. This pub is cosy, nice ambience, excellent home cooked food, great big plateful excellent value, good pub grub choices and nice hospitality. Put this together with a great choice of ales and the lovely little village situation and you have the ideal place to spend your early evening after a nice drive out in the country. Top marks will be back!
