Eaten a few times here and very good value. Service was fab and refreshing from the staff behind the bar. I ate the fish and chips and my husband the sausage and mash. Mine was brill however for the money would have liked to have seen some greens or something on my husbands plate, a few more pounds extra to buy greens off the 'sides menu' pushes up the price of a simple dish to over £12 for sausage and mash. If visiting on a Sunday I would book as it does get busy and does welcome dogs which I think is brilliant. Lovely views too and an adorable setting. Worth a try....

Having loved the French onion soup at both the Royal Standard and The Magpies ( sister pubs) we were sooooo disappointed today to find we were served up with a bowl of mushy, brown ..... Suggest the chef goes to sister pubs and see what the real thing is like. The bread looked and tasted like frozen baguette. Very disappointing, this pub has a great location, so please get a decent chef.

This place used to be a tip, frequented by hooligans and idiots. The recent acquisition by the people who own The Royal Standard of England and Harte and Magpies, has transformed it into what it always should have been, a friendly, village local with fantastic food, a lot of which is locally sourced. It serves great beer and is the kind of place one has in mind when watching the 'Midsomer Murders'. Wholeheartedly recommended. Well done Matthew!!

We came upon this pub purely because its sister pub 'the royal standard of england' was shut due to a fire! Since then we've been back three times. Its just a delight. Roaring fire, pleasant staff, very well priced beer and cider and very very good food.
I nearly wept, however, this weekend when they had run out of pies..... IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY.... and i wanted pie. I had a burger instead, and it came out with a candle in it :)
The kids fish was melting, they havent had it that good since we were in Whitby. My daughter wants to return for her birthday.
But it's still a proper pub, ticks all the boxes.

Fantastic location, log fire, great choice of home cooked food at amazing prices (pheasant rabbit for a tenner), great service (although you have to wait a little but well worth it), good beer and wine list- you couldnt ask for much more from a country pub. Thoroughly recommended.
