One of the loveliest home-cooked meals in a long time, lovely atmosphere and fantastic friendly service. Very reasonable price - looking forward to coming back in future.

I visited this pub recently with the intention to have dinner there. However on entering the pub found a less than warm and inviting atmosphere. There was also not clear evidence of food choice. I have never felt so uncomfortable in a pub and left for The Hare and Hounds down the road which was much more inviting.

I am reviewing this place just on atmosphere (as did not stick around) which I felt was terrible.

I would not recommend.

Popped in for lunch one Saturday and ordered a BLT Baguette and an Egg Mayo Baguette. Both were a full 12-inch baguette stuffed full of filling which felt liked it had been freshly prepared. The BLT in particular had bacon and grilled tomatoes which were still hot from the grill. Absolutely lovely sandwich, but the drinks were a bit pricey. Lovely pub.

This pub was close to our B&B in Box, so we stopped for a drink and expected pub food. The sea bass and the meat pie were far above regular pub food! It was delicious, so much so that we went back there again the next night. Sally, the manager was very friendly and helpful and gave us a tip to take the bus into Bath and enjoy the town without worrying about parking. Great tip! She was delightful and we enjoyed two wonderful dinners in a very nice atmosphere.

Nothing fussy about his place but just good honest food and beer. Nice atmosphere when busy. Stopped for one night B&B...cheap cheerful and excellent breakfast...as long as you are very hungry !!

Don't expect anything fancy but great value and a fun pub.
