We have been here many times for a drink and eaten on several occasions. A good, varied menu. We have always enjoyed our visits.

Small cosy oub with great character. Was nice and warm inside. I had the beef pie which as suggested by the waitress, was a great call. It was so good, the beef was tender in a dark rich gravy. Desert was also great, one of us had the ginger pudding and the other the brownie. Both great. Would definitely go... More

Called in on Sunday on chance and got the last table. Food was lovely - homemade pie, and a lovely smoked fish gratin. All was piping hot. The service from the young staff was very good, and service was nice and fast considering how busy it was. Will definitely be back. Great beer and cider too.

Stumbled across this one and how lucky we were! FAB local Beers and fantastic Pub Grub Menu but much better than the norm! Hate the term gastro pub but this is on the same wave length but full of local charm! Great attentive service has to be a pub to return to!

Visited on a Saturday evening, booked by a family member who lives in Whitchurch. Unimpressive from the road, but we did go in the back way. It was very busy and crowded which shows its popularity. We had to scout around for a chair because only 4 had been arranged around our table for a booking of 5 adults. It... More

We have eaten there a few times dinner and lunch. The food is okay, but the service sometimes lets it down and there is a wait at any time of the day even when not busy, Not a great deal of gluten free choice or real knowledge at the front of house
