Stayed in VB for a couple of frigid days in November 2013. The pub is very warm and welcoming, and they have a blazing log fire central to the bar/restaurant. Food is good comfort food, but you won't get fat on the portion sizes. I had the meat & potato pie with chips - it was delicious, but I could have eaten two. Good range of beers on draft. Outdoor bar / smoking area. Recommended.
