Two friends and I went to visit this pub, because of a recommendation from our university lecturer and when we pulled up to this little pub although quite confused when we walked up to what we thought was the entrance but was a door from the previous pub layout but just sealed shut; when we did eventually make way in we were taken in by the charm of this pub.

Excellent Food, Excellent Service and Excellent Beer

Four of us visited here just after Christmas . The staff were friendly the food was ok but the place had the feel of an Italian restaurant with its tiled floors and set out tables,not somewhere we could sit comfortably for a sociable drink and some pub food, which is all we wanted.

We were walking nearby on a cold winter's day and called in here for lunch. The Sardinian gentleman behind the bar was very welcoming and even gave me samples of the beer to try. Lunch was very good though the pasta could have been hotter so we decided to eat there again tonight. Three of us had delicious meals, the fourth was underwhelmed by his steak and kidney pud, slightly undercooked potatoes and would have liked a choice of veg rather than frozen peas. Do try the blue cheese panacotta and the desert version. The pub offers good value for money with friendly service.

Stopped while walking on Stanton Edge nearby. Good lunch and even better beer - we had the Nine Ladies beer that is locally brewed.
