The pub has a wonderful setting, close to M5, but in a peaceful village setting. Very good meal too. I had the Baked Chili which was scrummy.

The Retreat is a really lovely pub. The menu is extensive and very well priced. They also do a variety of snacks, which have always been lovely. The outdoor seating is also very nice in the summer. You do have to go up to the bar to order your food, but that doesn't bother me at all.
