A great pub with very friendly service and good beer. Nice, large, garden with kids amusements for those nice sunny summer days and evenings. Covered area for those, not so nice, days. Well worth a visit if in the area.

Wonderful community spirited pub, raising money for charity by runs etc. Very popular and friendly landlady/landlord. Lovely to sit in the garden in summer and a covered area fro BBQ and watching Sky Sports. Do visit.

Always visit this place when I'm in Melbourn! It's a proper drinkers boozer with great beer that is well priced. The couple that run it are cracking and very welcoming to all. There is food available which is always nice and the all day available pizzas are a god send for those end of evening cravings. Perfect atmosphere!

Went with some friends. The food was really bad, ordered the burger basket which came with a load of cheap fries and what seemed like a Rustler's burger. It was very cheap at £4 but I'd rather pay more for something nice, even if it's just some good quality chips over a "meal" The pints were great and the pub... More
