In here last Saturday and a bit quiet. Two bars with 4 hand pulls in each
Run of the mill GK IPA Abbott and Ruddels Counts but also Dark Star Hophead which was very nice and cost 3.30 a pint

We went in here at about 1.30pm on Sunday 5th June.The public bar was empty and i asked the friendly barmaid if we could bring our dog inside and order some food.She said yes.The roast could be ordered after 2 pm because the barman/chef had changed the menu back to the roast because the weather forecast had changed from hot and sunny to cool and wet that day and probably thought the roast more appropriate.I enjoyed a good pint of Greene King London Glory and my partner had a lime and soda and 2 packs of cheese and onion crisps for 5.80.We ordered the lamb roast for each of us and a half of London Glory.The roast was 7.50 per person and arrived within 20 minutes.The portion was very generous and well presented with condiments and mint sauce separate on a side plate.We were asked a couple of times by the friendly barman/ chef if everything was alright which it was.The public bar area had a useful spartan interior with a few tables and chairs on a lino type floor,a cosy low ceiling daubed with nautical maps.There was a dartboard and a shove h'apenney and a doorway to an outside smoking area.The woodgrain effect scumbling was quite convincing on many features.You could feel welcome in this bar if you were in work clothes or walking attire.For the more smartly dressed you could sit in the saloon bar which could be accessed via a doorway from the public bar which passed through a cosy snug seating area or from the street.The Saloon bar is more plush and lighter which is where the toilets are.Both the Ladies and Gents were clean and tidy with soap and hand drier.There were a few other customers here.One couple also had their dog with them.The pub is an old building dating from the 16th Century.It is good to visit a traditional pub with a Public and Saloon bar and a cosy snug.
A similar roast in an overstyled modern image establishment would probably cost 11.95
Our experience today deserves an 8 out of 10.

Two really lovely home made pizzas for 10 washed down with beer that hasn't been kept so well in the past - but now is the best pint for miles. Highly recommended

About time a bit of life at this end of the high street.

Mmm. Rather empty on a Thursday evening yet the musak was FAR TOO LOUD - live Lionel Ritchie concert - in an empty pub. An old fashioned place with beamed ceiling in a rustic village with heavy traffic. Agree that it is worth a visit.
