Taken over 6 months ago by a couple from Oxfordshire. Doing a good job of rotating the beers - making the most of it being a freehouse. The food is definitely homemade and good value for pubs around here. Good to see proper food on the menu! Beer festivals and live music seem to be featuring this summer. A lovely traditional pub without any pretentions. The beer garden to the rear has been nicely overhauled with unusual seating in the middle! Definitely worth the visit - its up a side road off the main road


Went for dinner there tonight! A COMPLETE DISASTER! VERY VERY VERY VERY RUDE landlady. FOOD INADEQUATE! There are far nicer pubs around with nice helpful staff and good quality food.


Under new management as of 21/05/14 good choice of real ales & home cooked food.


UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT from the 1/12/15. Fantastic little rambling gem of a pub away from the main road, it has a little for everyone. The beer garden has plenty of space and some shade for those occasional hot summer days. Inside the pub is equal parts cheer & charm with open fires for the winter walkers.The new owner Andy who has been the head chef for some months is continuing to provide mouthwatering, locally sourced food from a carefully devised menu which changes with the seasons. Behind the bar you can find a truly excellent selection of ales and wines
