This village pub is a little cracker. Lovely atmosphere, great food and nice real ales. What's not to like. We had a sandwich and ciabatta, both with plenty of lovely fillings, fantastic chips and a nice side salad. Superb and great value. It's well worth peeling off the A303 and driving the 5 minutes to Norton Sub Hamden and seeking... More

We're a bit bored or pretentious gastro pubs locally which charge an extra £5 for triple cooking and reducing things that don't taste any different! We'd already walked in and out of two pubs when we happened upon this little gem! A proper pub with a great atmosphere, lovely staff and really really good food which was great value. I... More

I haven't eaten here for a long, long time and it was fab. They have a great 2 courses for £8 weekday lunch menu - I had veg risotto and creme brulee both of which were absolutely delicious. I will be back to try the paella and sangria night!

We went for the £12 for 3 courses weekday lunchtime menu. The food was superb, freshly cooked and well presented. We were welcomed inside together with our dog, the service was friendly and efficient. We will be going back later this week to sample the evening menu.

Stopped on a Monday lunchtime and had the 3 courses for £12 offer. Rare roast beef salad and fish and chip mains were really good as were all other courses. The landlady was friendly and the pub had a lovely locals feel to it. Shame it's taken us so long to find it as we're often on the A303. We'll... More

We just love this pub! The welcome from Helen and her staff behind the bar and the quality of cooking from Mark and co. make this a local hot spot.

Went here for a birthday meal. Found food very nice and quick to arrive. Shame about them running out of wine and not great table service (young kids)...
