Tried this pub on a Friday evening in June. Pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere There was live music & the place was buzzing Had an evening meal, which was mediocre. Not a large choice, and took a long time to come. Small range of ales, which were reasonably priced, Car parking & beer garden Local pub with a great atmosphere.... More

Lovely friendly village pub, great atmosphere, reasonably valued drinks. Shame the chief is inflexible and verging on rude X

Really friendly community pub which serves great food. Can recommend the steak. The wine list is somewhat limited, but if you're looking for really good home cooked food this place is for you.

Stayed in a local B&B, we needed an evening meal and was told there was a pub serving food under a mile down the road. Very surprised to hear it was a community pub run by volunteers. Great atmosphere and brilliant real pub food.

Went to the Stoke Canon Inn for a meal last night, steak cooked to perfection and everyone loved their food. We will be making this a regular place to eat from now on. Top marks to the chef!

Nipped down the local pub for tea and had a very enjoyable meal. 2 meals and 2 pints of cider for £20 - BARGAIN. Excellent value, excellent service. Thankyou - nicest fish and chips I have had in a while :)

This is a nice friendly community-run pub. The beer selection has improved recently, and it's good value, but it's a shame that the food isn't better. It seems to be mostly pre-prepared fare with overcooked veg. That said, last time we had a Sunday roast there it was good. It has a nice beer garden so worth a visit on... More

Walking in the area and took a detour for some food and drink. 3 local beers on offer. Only had a baguette to eat, but it was good value and well presented. Staff all friendly. Would certainly visit another time.

Called in for a family meal on Saturday evening, sat in the lovely beer garden. The food was fantastic, lovely quality steak. All five meals were delicious. Despite the fact the kitchen was not open when we arrived the chef was more than happy to cook for us and we will definitely be back. Highly recommended.
