I think the last reviewer was a bit harsh. Although I didn't eat here, there were three McMullen ales (Cask, AK and Country) available, and the Cask was very drinkable. The pub was quiet for a Saturday night. The barman was friendly and welcoming. With its attractive and out of the way location, I'd certainly visit again for a a pint or two of real ale.

A dreadfully overpriced pub , ridiculous really (r they in central London), God paid less for a beer in the Savoy bar! Awful ripoff of a place. A very lazy pub with idle staff. Shame really as nice location. Have to agree with others i'd stretch myself to beat 0/10, a real ripoff and staff r so poor. Company summer party seeks location??? This place is a big NONO!!
Food was really really dreadful n I'll eat anything.

Very attractive looking pub from the outside in a pleasant setting, the staff were most welcoming considering it was a Sunny Saturday lunchtime and extremely busy.
The beer is well kept, and the meal we had was superb!
Perfect pit stop for cyclists or walkers.
The John Bunyan will now be on our cycle route a lot more.

I went there with the family (including the dog). We sat in the garden on a nice sunny evening. A staff member came out and asked us to keep our dog on a lead in case it aggravated other dogs. We have a retriever ... it wouldn't aggravate a fly. The staff member chose to ignore the other (regular?) couple whose dog was the size of a pony and was standing and then lying on the table they were sitting at. Unbelievable! Unfortunately it was after we'd ordered food and eaten it.
We ate there. Now that was a real mistake. Frozen fish in batter and chips (- cod apparently, although it looked and tasted more like the packet it would have come in; Iíve never seen grey cod before). The food was nothing short of a rip off. It was embarrassingly bad.
The beer was ok and the barman was really friendly but that was limited compensation given the overall experience.
In summary, there are better pubs in the area, especially if you enjoy dogs and food, but not both on the same table!

Went here for a large group buffet after walking the dogs.
Found the staff to be helpful and accommodating. It is a small place, with the tables a little too close together, but it's warm, cosy and clean. As I say, we were there for a specially prepared buffet for about forty, which was well presented and of good quality. I can't comment on the normal food as I didn't have any, but if it is to the standard of what I did have, it should be fairly good.
As to the beer - It's a McMullens house, without a guest, not that I could see. The AK was in great shape, well kept and about the right temperature. Quite likely to go back after, or during, another walk.
