“Great country pub.”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is a lovely pub for a meal. Plenty of choice for everyone. As well as the standard menu there is a specials board. I had a great chicken, bacon and cheese melt which was really substantial and very reasonably priced. They also serve a great selection of ales (according to hubby)! We had a very pleasant lunch in the garden on a lovely sunny afternoon. You couldn't ask for more.

This is a delightful place for a good meal and excellent beer. So quaint and a lovely olde worlde atmosphere. This would be my first choice every time. The food is consistently good and reasonably priced.

I just love this place.set out in a series of small adjoining rooms it has a very friendly atmosphere. The food is excellent and a very varied selection, with a few innovative ideas. The choice of ales, lagers and ciders is beyond compare for such a small place. The outdoor gardens are small but reasonable well maintained. However it is the pub itself that is the attraction, quirky but excellent. Always winning awards ale awards. Good value for money, Todd food and drink and very clean...is there anything more that you could want.

Six of our family went there for a meal last night. We all had something different and all emptied our plates AND had dessert which is unheard of. It has a friendly atmosphere and the staff are polite and helpful. Definitely one of the best venues we've been to.

Great pub - always something happening (mostly spontaneous and funny!), great beer and food and quality accomodation. What more can I say? MAD pub of the year again! Apparently I have to use 200 words so DRINK MORE BEER!

Stayed for one night with friends after attending a wedding at the nearby golf club . Fortunately for us they had no rooms available and recommended The Prince of Wales. It is a lovely friendly pub and the accommodation was spotlessly clean.We really enjoyed our stay especially the large full English!! We would definitely go back.

Just stayed here for a couple of nights to attend a wedding nearby. What a find! We were made to feel really welcome by everyone, including the locals! It's such a friendly pub, the food is brilliant and, according to my husband, the beer is great. Nearly had a disaster as we were about to leave as my OH lost the car keys - everyone was so helpful and disaster was averted after they were found after 3 hours - but we'd been told we were welcome to stay if we needed. Definitely would stay again - with great pleasure.

Room Tip: If you want a "romantic" break opt for the four poster bed with wet room.
