We booked a table for two tonight as we have won a voucher in our little girls school event for the Wednesday night pie night. We went very open minded as I remember the pub from my school days and reading the older reviews on here, were not sure quite what to expect.
We were greeted by friendly staff and shown a table. Not the best position, but I'm glad we did book as it was packed.
Pie night brings visions of a couple of pastry heavy pies and chips. NOT HERE. There were approx 6 pies on the menu with some being pastry topped and mine cheesy mash topped.
Very well thought about, with the choice of two starters ( Both fish ), then the pies and two deserts.
I was full after, which is rare, and on a price point deal, usually these things are measured small. Not so. There was plenty, and lovely fresh, well cooked veg complimented the main well.
Not sure on the complimentary sangria ( Why? Half a pint or small wine would have been better )
Very good level of service, there but not bothering you. Very good food. Very good ambiance and very good beer.
We will be back, and will try the sister Wychwood pub down the road too.More
