Was shocked to witness a brawl tonight with a number of patrons shouting and arguing with a customer. Not really the quiet pint I was hoping for. A drunk chap and a very loud woman could be heard arguing then before you know it everyone was involved.

Lovely pub. I met a nice chap called Eddie Grundy who told me all about the history of the place and even offered to sell me a brace of pheasants at a discount.

We arrived after a long day touring the area and found a wedding reception in progress - we were amazed it wasn't being held at the nearby Grey Gables Hotel or the stately home Lower Loxley, which isn't far, but I think there was family connection with the landlord. A great night was had by all as we were made... More

As an Yank married to a Brit, I have been to many a pub in your country. We stopped in during a recent tour of the countryside: i'll give it the benefit of the doubt because we heard of the recent floods that devastated the village. We met the vivacious owner, Jolene, and her daughter, Fallon, who were both delightful.... More

Unexpected charming pub in the heart of a pretty village. Watch out for the peacock we nearly ran it over, I'm sure it's tail will grow back soon, the landlady was very understanding and served us a fantastic ploughman's lunch which complimented the local brew of Shires. We hope to purchase a flat in the recently refurbished building opposite as... More

Whilst staying at a local hotel I decided to visit the village pub before my return to France. An experience I have only read or heard of. Well frankly I don't know why the English bang on about their pubs so much. There was a very poor menu, miserable staff and an air of general neglect. Apparently they had a... More

Well we visited the Bull yesterday, via many detours. Despite dry weather locally, they seem to have experienced a massive flood in Ambridge. The downstairs bar is wrecked but an upstairs bar is offering bottles and microwaved pizzas. Not what we expected and no sign of the usual cook, Freda.

I've called in a couple of times, but on this visit I didn't recognise anyone. The whole village seems to have changed. There seemed to be a lot of people in high-vis jackets carrying theodolites, and a script writer from a local radio station taking notes of everyone's conversation. Met two lovely young ladies called Tilly and Josie, who didn't... More

Just stopped on our way to camp at Loxfest (the traffic was awful). There seemed to be some kind of caterwauling from upstairs (someone said a rehearsal) so we drank up hurriedly and went to enjoy Quaintance Smith

We thought the racket made by a couple of local yokels having a barney about a combine was bad enough, but then this horrible, eerie caterwauling started to come from upstairs. it was like something out of the Wicker Man. Be especially wary of the themed menus!
