Lovely old building with a welcoming atmosphere, old wood & flagstone floors. Nice garden area out the back. Friendly staff and a good selection of real ales. We were there during the Isle of Wight festival so they weren't doing their regular lunch but were doing a barbecue - had a nice tasty steak baguette.

Thank CedarWych

This pub oozes history and I love it. The food can be expensive but the portion sizes are good, the drinks need to be cheaper. It changed hands about 18? months ago, the last owners were brilliant and will be a hard act to follow. The staff now are not as friendly and one barmaid in particular spends more time preening in the mirror than she does serving customers.

Original flagstones and beams- good beer and great atmosphere. Didn't try the food but it looked good.

After a day out geocaching we needed a drink so as we were staying in the Travelodge just around the corner we popped in for a drink.
An old pub just how we like them. Not very busy but it was late afternoon and only a few punters there. Good beer and that's what counts.

Uninterested staff, more concerned with sending texts than serving customers. Food was so so and overpriced. We won't be returning.
