Sue and Ian are terrific hosts - fantastic meals every time we go there - good to see a local couple running a local pub

This is one of the last real English pubs, most of them are now run by ignorant uncaring managers who are controlled by the breweries and are rarely local. The food is second to none and the service is excellent, anyone I recommend is always equally as complimentary. The landlord is my favourite, remember it's his pub not your's and you'll be fine, turn your mobile off and enjoy a trip into the past. If you want warning signs and plastic banners everywhere don't go to this one, if the landlord serves you keep your head down switch off your phone and enjoy the food and the ambience, you'll soon warm to him if you become a regular. If you have children and they are well behaved then try it, if they're not I'd find somewhere else. The food is homecooked by the landlady who is both a delightful person and a wonderful cook, ask to see her to say thanks. If you want to show a foreign visitor a quintessentially English pub then this is it, they will positively delight in it's old world charm.
This pub has hardly changed in the forty plus years that I have used it and long may that continue, remember it's the landlord that controls that so long may he reign.

food is always second to none although the service can be a bit cold at times when you turn up with children

The landlord is one of the many people you meet in roles that involve serving the public who clearly doesn't really like working with the public! Unfortunately his gruff service does rather put you off, however he's saved by a lovely lady who cooks really good British meals which haven't been gastropubbed. If you're after a decent roast, gammon and chips etc you're in the right place. The prices are fine too - everything seemed to be £7.90. Portions are generous and the roast included a great range of different vegetables that were all well cooked. Just try and sit far away from the bar where the landlord is!
