Called in after along and interesting walk got a lovely pint of Bass served through a hatch by a jug by her granddaughter if you wanted another drink you had to ring a bell it was like going back sixtey years Bessi was in a wheelchair in the corner of the bar as sharp as ever.

Something of an institution and a hark back to old days. Just a NICE NICE visit and so please we went. Extremely freindly and well worth the visit but dont expect a Wetherpoons...thank heavens!!

Not sure what some reviewers are expecting, this is a traditional old country pub, basically a few seats, a fire and a serving hatch. Beer is from the barrel into a jug. It is not palatial (although it is frequented by royals), it is not a gastro pub (I did see peanuts) and it is not spotless (I also spotted a dead fly....perhaps I'll die).
Go there while it is still like it is....splendid.

We popped in late afternoon on a Friday. There were two others in the pub, a roaring fire in the stove and a couple of Labradors steaming dry in front of it. The Bass was good and our daughter enjoyed a packet of peanuts while patting the dogs. Worth visiting if only because of its utter uniqueness.

A hidden gem in a lost valley. Simply wonderful. Made incredibly welcome by Bessie and an excellent pint of Bass. Well off the beaten track and a must for anyone with an interest of a life gone by. After 67 years running the place Bessie is as sharp as a tack. Loved this place.
