I have been going here for years, but it has declined massively in recent times. Food was poor and service could be improved. A very tired old menu, which is now cooked poorly as well.

visited here after looking online at their menu, although it was slightly different menu when we got there, there were 4 of us in our party and we all said how tasty and lovely the meals were, there was plenty of food on the plates and was hot and very filling, will definately visit here again and would highly recommend...

Booked Sunday lunch with the hubby, managed to fit us in last minute booking. Lovely lunch with option of different roast meats or veggie option. Choice of starters or/and desserts. Staff very friendly and always helpful. The pub is dog and child friendly but just right for couples too.

We went for lunch twice in one week. Food was excellent especially the Steak and Apple special. Rump steak was so tender we found it hard to believe it was rump it was as tender as a fillet steak. Staff were attentive and made us feel welcome. Will be going again in the near future.

We have stayed at a nearby cabin site 4 times - April 2011. January 2012, February 2014 and June 2015. Our first visit we were lucky enough that the Chef agreed that there was time and room for us as we hadn't booked (we have booked for every visit since) the food was delicious and the service friendly. We have... More

We were recommended this pub by the granary in east bicnor. It didn't disappoint! Very friendly and a proper locals pub. It took us much longer to get there than anticipated due to our poor map reading skills! We both had pies which games with loads of vegetables and crispy chips. Would return!

Every time I get the chance I come here for a meal with the family. The things that keep bringing me back are the staff, the great pub food, the location, the pub it self and the famous dog on the wall. I've never had a bad meal here and nor have any of the family ever moaned about the... More

Visited this lovely country pub both in the summer and winter to enjoy either the Steak and Strawberry lunch or the Steak and Apple crumble . The crumble is Great! Friendly helpful staff . Five stars if the fries were chunkier .
