I love this wonderful old pub - excellent beer from local breweries and great huffers. It's just a shame about the sometimes unenthusiastic service.

I went here on my Birthday and cycled the 90 minute journey each way, having previously been with the wife and children in the car a couple of weeks earlier. It really is a pub in the middle of nowhere - which may account in some way for it being so good, otherwise it simply wouldn't survive.

Beer was again excellent and on the previous visit we had the Huffers which were tasty and very filling. I did sit and listen to some of the locals and the reviewer who commented on the swivel-eyes loons at the next table must just have been unlucky (it happens in the best of pubs sometimes). We didn't have any grumble with the service when we ate here and the staff (and one of the locals I spoke with) were friendly but I do wish they'd sort out the website as the times given for food are misleading (so call them first is my advice).

Superb out of the way pub with those wonderful Bishop Nick beers. Had a couple of pints of Heresy, clean crisp and on point. Another of the all those all too are pubs with a tap room. Gorgeous setting. Going to try there Hopstock beer festival next year. Have to agree with another reviewer, service was pretty slow. And have to say the fella behind the bar was a lot friendlier to his regulars than too new faces like myself. Still, these are small gripes in the scheme of things. A wonderful traditional pub with beers to match.

This is a great little pub. A classic timeless country gem. Only thing is I wish they still had those great jokes on the website. They were SO funny. The guy who runs the place is called Rave and he knows just about everything there is to know about drains. Fascinating to talk to. The food they serve are 'huffers'. They probably call them that because sandwiches and baguettes are hard to spell. Still good though :-)

Good traditional pub with pleasant garden. Shame about the staff. After ordering food a grumpy man came and asked me what I had ordered as my order has "disappeared". I repeated the order. He then returned and said no wonder he couldn't find the order as he hadn't taken it - it was taken by the boss. (He somehow managed to make me feel as if that was my fault..............)
I then went to the bar (no customers waiting) with the empty dog bowl and politely asked for some water which I was given grudgingly with the remark "There's a tap in the toilet". When the grumpy man brought our food I thanked him. It is customary, I believe, for the server to say "enjoy your food" or something similar. Instead we received an abrupt "Have you paid?" Would prefer to drink where the staff can manage a smile and make their customers feel welcome.
