Looks a nice place from the outside. Inside, it has a long bar with plenty of room. Although it's fairly dark. We came in at opening time yesterday - 11am. A couple of others followed us in shortly after. I'd imagine it gets fairly busy in the evenings. 2 ales and a cider were on - Courage Directors, Sharps Doom Bar & Orchard Pig Explorer. The only pub I found with a real cider. But there are many better ale choices around.

Not having read the reviews previously, I visited this pub with an open mind. It was around 5 pm on Sunday and although the World Cuo was on, there were few people in the bar. Most had gone out into the garden as the afternoon was sunny and warm. The meal was good and efficiently served by cheerful and polite staff who interacted with the customers.
The only downside was that a carvery was advertised from 12 noon with no finishing time and this had finished by the time I arrived. Also, some of the offers while seeming to be clear did not appear to be offered or, if I had misunderstood them, they were confusing. For example, a dessert was offered for £3.55 and the enticement to add another one for half-price did not materialise as I was charged £7.10 for both. I didn't realise it at the time so I probably missed out. Otherwise a good experience. A very nice pint of Brain's dark smooth delightful.

Mediocre Sunday carvery today, pretty tasteless to say the least! Asked for a pint of tap water and was told that they don`t serve water in pint glasses only halves, another idiotic rule by the fool who runs this place!

Large open plan drinking barn that looks like it was a barn at one time - if there is any sport on with a local emphasis it also gets the animals in to match it. okay when empty though and the ale was drinkable and a local brew too.

Went in with friends who drink lager and wanted to watch the football on Sky. I hated it. Had a pint of horribly-kept SA Gold and an OK pint of Greene King IPA (a beer it's almost impossible to bugger up), and some deeply mediocre food. Stick to the No Sign bar round the corner.
