Friendly Marstons/Jennings pub (beer OK) with decent Sunday trade and fabulous scenery.

Popped in recently after many, many years. Back in the day, this used to be a regular spot for me where a few pints of an evening would be soaked up by pie n' peas, with pickled onion slices and vinegar, all in a bowl. Still very much the same pub, with two distinct drinking areas and a really cosy feel. Worth noting the plaque outside above the main entrance: 'Goode ale tomorrow for nothing', dating from the early 17th century. It's an old place this, set in magnificent countryside. Had an excellent pint of Cumberland Ale from Jennings.

Has a good reputation for food, especially grills, where pork, lamb and chicken complement the usual steaks. It's also the 'home of real chips' - you can get a sticker for your car - and I can vouch that these fresh, hand-cut masterpieces or varying shape and size are things of beauty.

A photograph on the wall shows the view from the front door during the severe winter of 1962/63. The snow is so heavy you can't make out the road down from the pub, which makes in at least 8ft deep.

Recommended.

Went for a drink last Wednesday. Good beer and a great crowd. Will be there again.
