“Proper ale and traditional bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

Liked the choice of beer and the quality...tasted good.
Turn onto the main road and off it was treacherous. Not for the feint hearted. Lovely church yard opposite for a Sunday explore.

“Good food, average portions, expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Needed a quick lunch with a business client and there aren't many options in the vicinity. The pub itself is a nice place to eat, homely at the front with a large spacious restaurant to the rear. Sandwiches are reasonably priced but burger and fries over £10 for the size of the portion is a little too much.

However,staff are very friendly and service was very good. Better alternatives within 5 miles but given the circumstances it suited our purposes. Menu has a good number of choices.

We stayed after our visit to the NEC. This little Gem is in a village setting close to the NEC and road routes. Great location, food, room & hospitality - thank you Chris, Fanfan & staff we will be back!
