“Worst pub in Shropshire”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Looking forward to a nice family meal out but it was ruined by poor service, slow staff, average and cold food as well as pretty poor value for money. Much prefer the nearby white lion

“Too busy!!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Not impressed. We arrived, along with others wanting a meal to be told they had stopped serving food. It was before their deadline for this so when some customers asked why??? they were told 'We have been very busy tonight!' . Well lets hope this continues as those you turn away will not return!
Very disappointing.

Beautiful steak with a huge portion of freshly cooked vegetables. Very nice country pub with an excellent menu and good wine.

“Really good night out”
Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

I had a meal this evening with my wife and daughter, the food was really good, the atmosphere was nice and friendly and staff were very attentive. The pub is my local watering hole, but tonight's meal was a real triumph, the menu has recently been updated which was a nice surprise.
