Very busy, but with plenty of very willing staff and a convivial owner who likes to circulate and talk to the customers. If you only try one thing make it the cod with beef fat chips. Chips like they used to be!

It's pub that you feel has bags of character as soon as one sees it, looking as it does like it was built by a builder with lots of spare bits left over from other projects. It is also really really old, so old in fact that while seated inside little puffs of dust sometimes drop down from between the... More

Lovely family friendly pub, the best pub garden in the village! Delicious food well worth a visit. Recently updated the kitchen to a wonderful standard, bravo on bringing a very tired pub up to the 21st century.

We had a large gathering following a funeral at the Fox and Castle. The buffet they provided was excellent and the staff very attentive and friendly. We were very pleased with the experience and would happily recommend this venue for similar events.

Came for an evening meal with my daughter. Great food. Staff were so nice and welcoming. Will definitely be back. The pub was really busy but they found us a table really quickly with no fuss. The food was unbelievable. Great value for money.

Recently popped into this pub having passed and thought it looked quite nice, this was due to the quiet location and old world charm to the exterior. What a disappointment inside. The bar smelt of cleaning products, dark, dismal and quite a rude member of staff served us, he was rude, offensive and lacking in hair he also lacked any... More

Hey Chris W, you cheeky little monkey you! Making fun of my hair loss, it happens to us all one day. I assume you were the "customer" with faeces on your chin where you head had been so far up your own backside. You were advised that we don't open until midday yet insisted on coming in at 11am when... More

Sadly.with doors blowing open on two sides the pub was rather chilly. There were a couple of small electric heaters in use but some selfish patrons directed all the warmth at themselves.B**tards!! Only one person 'out front' (we assume other staff had let them down),so service was a little mixed. They happily took both our Tastecards, a real bonus, and... More

Really like this pub. It's dog friendly, kiddy friendly the staff are friendly and we find it a great place. Food is very good especially the burgers. The garden when decent weather is fab for the kids with footie area, trampoline and swing etc. Summer evenings after the boys football are lovely here.

The food was amazing. The service was perfect. Couldn't have asked for more in this lovely pub with so much character. Who I'm assuming was the owner couldn't have done more for us. We bought a groupon and booked in last minute and we couldn't have been looked after anymore. Highly recommend. Thank you!

What can I say? Friendly, cozy and relaxed place with very good food. We have been a couple of times and things have been consistently good. The burger is great with lean beef. We will certainly be back!
