I have been in this pub many times in the not too distant past, when the beer was well-kept and the proper temperature but the food was of variable quality. Back then the chips seemed to have been heated up from frozen and the fish a composite, like a kind of giant fish-finger.
Recently I have visited several times and the food has been unrecognisably better. A few days ago I had homemade cottage pie, which was delicious, and the vegetables tasted fresh and not over-cooked. A pleasing, unpretentious, country pub meal with good local beer.
I'm still not taken with the armchairs, but that's just a personal opinion!
