Pub at full swing
Jul 2019 • Friends
A great traditional pub with a choice of traditional Harveys beers and now with three Lagers, and three ciders, serving breakfast and Sunday roasts, open all day and closed Mondays.
They have regular live music and check on Facebook for updates, a new menu for midweek food and fish and chips on a Friday.

Chill out Sunday Afternoon
Apr 2019 • Friends
With two for£10 Sunday Roasts, friendly bar. Well kept drinks. AND great chill out music ( Most Sundays) attracts a friendly clientele to the Inn pub in Upper Stone Street.
A true traditional country pub on the edge is town.

Grand traditional country Pub in the Middle of Town
Feb 2019 • Friends
Really welcoming pub, great range of well-kept ales; good food; in a friendly atmosphere.
New landlord and landlady extend a warm welcome to all, as indeed do the bar staff. Regulars have returned with the addition of many new faces are discovering the delights of this old oak framed hostelry.
Cold days sees the fires blazing in the hearth. Sunday roasts a generous in proportion, well prepared, tasty and good value
Chill out live music on Sundays, Great Jams twice a month, and occasional live bands on Fridays or Saturday evenings
Well worth a visit

Dissapointed
Jun 2018 • Family
Thought we would have a meal here, the pub is very nice and the tables had linen with flowers so looked lovely, but the music was ear damaging, so decided to go into garden, main area was full of manure/dirt? With dog poo by the gate, one table at the lower level was in a clean area but we just drank our drinks and left. The family area needs an overhaul it was obviously good at one time but not now.

Sad decline
May 2017 • Couples
Strangely reopened recently, The Pilot now only opens for limited hours three days per week and has essentially become a place where the landlord drinks with his mates and has the odd band in. Strange and limited mix of beers available, lager drinking is discouraged through lack of options and is occasionally openly derided.

It would have been better for the brewery to let this once welcoming and friendly pub die.

A nice local pub
Jan 2017 • Couples
We like this pub. It serves a good pint of Harveys beer, the locals are very friendly, they have a quiz every Sunday and they often have live bands. Very good if you live nearby.

Great Music pub

Absolutely loved this place. Went to see a great blues band last night, really enjoyed it. It's great to see Pubs of this character still open these days. Great atmosphere and fantastic selection of Harvey's ale on tap. Will deff return.

If you are not a regular in this pub, you will be made to feel unwelcome, much like we did! Prices are far too high for a dingy pub like this too. Will def not return!!
