No silly gimmicks. Proper pub food and big portions. Landlord was very helpful. My aunt asked for something that was not on the menu and he sorted it for us. Good value and very tasty. Every meal our group had, was spot on.

A friendly, traditional local pub. Helpful staff and good service! Lovely to catch up with family and friends - can sit outside when the sun is out! Can recommend without reservation.

The food is proper pub food - no pretend Gasto-Pub stuff here, but no silly prices either, which is refreshing. Just nice pub food, and masses of it. There are... More

Very lovely old pub at the top of the high street, dog friendly. Dogs get a biscuit and a drink as you walk in. The doombar is a popular ale in this pub very unusual that they don't have it on. In the winter its lovely as they have a proper fire going in both bar and lounge. The food... More

We were travelling to Oxford and decided to stop for a snack. We ordered a glass of wine each, a ham sandwich for me and corned beef for my husband. They arrived with salad and chips, the amount of meat in each sandwich was huge and all very tasty. The bill came to just over £17 which we felt was... More
