Having read the reviews, it was pleasing to find a warm welcome and a log fire. The locals were friendly and dogs on leads were not discouraged. The menu was varied and our party of 9 including a vegetarian had a good choice from the menu. Everyone expressed satisfaction with their meals and the size of the portions. The food... More

Food and atmosphere was great and reasonable priced, but the decor inside is very dated which makes it feel a bit "grubby" Overall very happy with meal and drinks

We popped in for a drink while visiting friends. We had a friendly welcome from both the staff and the customers. They had a lovely fire going and it was very cosy. We enjoyed the banter and the drinks. I'm sure it is a great local.

Me and my family were regulars here last year and were always impressed with the food, staff and pub! There used to be a lovely bar team, including a girl called Beth who was always an absolute delight and was brilliant with customers! There were other team members like Mike and Vicki who were always friendly and helpful too! However,... More

This is a lovely, typically English country pub, rather difficult to find these days in South England. We went on Sunday night for dinner with friends. The atmosphere was amazing, the food very good and the red wine, a Chilean Merlot, we chose very palatable, the price very reasonable. It is a very popular pub/restaurant and it is often very...

We had an excellent Sunday roast dinner here yesterday with family and friends. Not the first time we have enjoyed the roast dinners here. Everything was cooked perfectly and there was plenty of it!! Service was excellent and the staff at the bar were polite, cheerful and hard working at a busy time. We arrived at 1pm and left at... More

We visited this pub for the first time this weekend on the recommendation of a family member and we were not disappointed. A traditional country pub with no frills but friendly staff and an excellent menu of traditional pub food. The pub was full but we had booked a table. There were plenty of staff to cope with the throng... More

Just moved into the area and thought we would try out the "local". Excellent food and beer. Staff were very helpful polite and friendly as were the locals. Loads of live music coming up in the next few weeks. Will definitely be going back there soon.

Had a meal here one weekday evening and it was disappointing. I had sausage and mash but it was all much too salty. Salty mash, salty sausages, salty gravy. I don't mind some salt to bring out the flavour but this was too much. I'll not be in a rush to return particularly as the place has very little ambience.

After work we headed to The Farmer Inn for a drink and an evening meal, my wife enjoyed steak and ale pie with a selection of vegetables while I had hunters chicken with chips, salad and coleslaw. Both meals were well presented and good size, the pie was freshly prepared with tender steak and the most delicious ale gravy while... More
