Having recently visited this pub I would strongly recommend that you disregard the one star rating that someone gave - I can only assume that the reviewer was actually talking about another pub!! This is what every good pub should be: full of charm and character,friendly atmosphere and excellent food (+ a good selection of real ales) The food is... More

Booked a table for a special anniversary lunch on a Sunday. No problems with the reservation and the staff were friendly and welcoming. We were disappointed with the menu choice which was rather limited (probably a restricted menu for Sunday lunch). We opted for the pate to start followed by roast shoulder of lamb for main. The pate was really... More

We visited this pub while attending a family function. The pub is clean and inviting with lovely traditional decor. The staff are friendly and hardworking. I always prefer to visit pubs and restaurants that aren't part of a chain or franchise because I find that independent pubs offer higher quality food and that is certainly true in the case of...

Had a meal at this delightful pub one Saturday evening. The pub is gorgeous to look at honey coloured stone coupled with a thatched roof, oodles of curb appeal. There's a lovely outside seating area to the rear of the pub, perfect for a warm sunny day. Inside doesn't disappoint: low ceilings, beams and a wonderful open fire. It's very... More

a couple of friends and myself had been geocaching locally and decided to stop here for lunch after our exertions. I suddenly had an urge for a good old fashioned ploughmans but hardly any pub does them nowaday. Instead i had the most delicious selection of Italian meats, sumptuous sundried tomatos and olives with outstanding breads. Absoluting fantastic. I'll definitely... More

Wow, I have driven past this pub on many occasion. From the front it looks small and as the front door is closed, I have always presumed that it was closed. However drive into the car park and the huge and beautiful garden greets you. The pub has been sympathetically decorated and is welcoming to everyone including our 2 year... More

We had an early evening meal here with friends and our kids. Had gorgeous fish and chips which I would highly recommend. Great value and a very big portion. The kids meals were also great and the service was super although not in your face which is perfect!

From outside it looked delightful. Inside looked good too. After that pretty poor. We had a table reserved. Sat down. No menus. We had to ask. They gave us plenty of time to make our selections - we had to call them over - bear in mind we were not tucked away in some forgotten corner! The menu looked good... More

Found this wonderful pub on our way home from a day in the Cotswolds. After lots of walking a good meal was in order and we got a fantastic one! Impressive beer selection, warm, cosy atmosphere, friendly welcome & chat, tasteful background music, clean & spacious, modern yet traditional local pub feel, excellent service, imagine the outdoor seating area is...
