Clearly my post wasn't a review, just a fact.

MH obviously doesn't like criticism - and wants us to follow his links, and paste to see decades old information on other sites.

No thanks MH; this site about pub reviews, not links to/about other sites!

Hidden away in a peaceful setting, this rural community pub is popular with cyclists and walkers. A local brewery is usually present among the five hand pumps. The front bar features terracotta tiles and a fireplace, the rear bar contains a hundred-foot-deep well. There are two gardens, one child-friendly, the other for adults only. Lunches are served daily and evening meals from Tuesday to Saturday. The pub has a strong community focus showing TV sports, movies, and hosting charity events.

As for historic Interest, yes, there is that well in rear bar area. However, more interestingly, the pub was apparently that used as The Fool And Bladder, in the 1980 film by the late Vivian Stanshall, national treasure, "Sir Henry At Rawlinson End". You can see the pub in the opening shot here:

You can find a link to a more recent view, in one of my earlier comments.

This pub serves two regular beers, Greene King Abbot and Greene King IPA.

There are three changing beers.

So there you go, I'll leave the kind reader to decide whose reviews they would rather study, mine or Randolph's - correctly oft described by Fozzy 123, as a multi-login troll.

Hat thinks people are interested in 30 year old views of pubs - and that they will even download it from another site!

Mad hatter?

Brightie, old chap. Just because you and a few others choose to behave in much the same way does not make that a site rule. WhatPub and PubsGalore would seem to be the places for the type of information, which fully satisfies the scope of your particular outlook - my condolences.

There is one actual site rule, however, that comments should not be posted, which only refer to someone else's and not to the pub, as do yours - which tell no one anything whatsoever about it either.

But paste this for a view of this pub in 1980:

You love it, don't you?

Rooty toot, indeed.

People are indeed interested in movies. They probably use a film review site though.

The most "recent" review of this pub is two years ago, so please do the BITE website a favour and concentrate on saying something useful about a pub that you have been inside, or have a trading update (closed, open, etc.) to provide. Take a look at exemplary contributors such as Mappi, Blue, Snarling, Boehm and small group of others and you'll get the idea.

Toodle-pip, must dash.
