Stayed for one night, this is a place with lots of character and history if you are looking for a quiet place just outside Boulton this is it the only downside is the state of the approach road from the rear. Take the Station road it is in reasonable order. Food is second to none and the staff are really... More

Literally in the middle of nowhere but a fantastic little pub. Visited with some work colleagues and steak and kidney pie was a little more kidney and not as much steak but very tasty. Bury black pudding starter was a must though - could have eaten it twice!

Can't review the food as we were told at 2pm by some snotty 18 year old waiter that there were no tables until 6pm yet the place was half empty. Spoke to the manager who was struggling to cope with a few drinks orders behind the bar and he showed no desire to accommodate my partner and I. We were... More

We haven't visited here for quite some time so we thought we would try again. Same old menu but no special board tonight. The meals where we'll cooked with reasonable quick service. One downside is it appears that they have had a sizeable price increase across the whole menu.

We've been a few times and never disappoints! Always a good meal had. And considering every time we've been and it's been busy the staff have always been friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend and go again and again. It's a great place to eat and welcomes dogs too which is a bonus.

We visited at lunchtime on a Sunday and have eaten here previously with no complaints. However I certainly will not be returning anytime soon. We asked politely if we could add a place setting to a table of six... The manager was extremely unhelpful to the point of rudeness. ... A poor example to his staff . Four of our... More

Came here one weekend with my friends for a nice enjoyable meal and waited over 2 hours for our food. We complained and the waitress didn't have a clue what to do and all she said was "I don't know it'll be soon". When it eventually got to us it was undercooked and the chips may as well gave been...

During this time we asked the waitress how long it will be to be told 'I don't know' we then asked if she could find out. 15 minutes later no waitress. So I asked myself how long it would... More

I recently went to the Strawbury duck after a long walk and I found the place to be charming. It was so warm and welcoming and the staff were very friendly. I ordered the steak pie and was extremely happy with my choice! I would recommend to anyone. Thanks very much
