Top notch beer and inexpensive simple bar lunches in a warm-hearted, unspoilt pub; a delight

Happily, little changes here and the friendly landlord still keeps Wells Bombardier and a couple of guests such as and Storm PGA and Thornbridge Jaipur IPA on handpump, and several wines by the glass. The best room in which to enjoy your drinks is the snug little right-hand bar, virtually built for chat with its dark beam-and-plank ceiling, dark wall settles, single pew, plain tables, a hot coal and log fire, a few team photographs, dominoes and cribbage; background music. There's a bigger, equally unpretentious bar on the left. As well as seats out in front, there are picnic-sets in the well tended back garden. The surrounding walks are marvellous and both walkers and their dogs are warmly welcomed; they keep doggie treats behind the bar. In a beautiful steep stone village, this cottagey pub is named after an unbeatable racehorse of the early 18th c. Now that there is no longer a village shop, the pub does sell some produce.

What the licensee says

Set in the heart of this pretty village the pub retains the charm of an authentic British pub- where good real ale is top of the menu! The aim is quality at a reasonable price - WellsBombardier is a regular plus two changing guest ales .There are two bars - a cosy snug and a comfortable lounge, both have lovely open fires.People come here for a good pint, a friendly atmosphere or a game of dominoes! Walkers, dogs and children are all welcome. Dog treats are kept behind the bar (or in pockets of a number of the locals!) There is also a lovely garden at the back where customers are invited to enjoy their drink or some lunch. Light & simple home cooked food is available at lunch time (12-2pm, closed Mon & Tues lunch) Homemade soups & casseroles, filled cobs etc all sensibly priced!
