Like some previous reviewers we hadn't been here for years possibly even a decade. On early Saturday it was very busy and service was difficult owing to a no-show from one of the staff. I first started going here in the late 1970s when Andy was here, with his Dad picking up the beer from the West Midlands. There was also a bar billiard s table. Halycon days. The building has been considerably extended to offer separate dining facilities but we were the only people in there. There were some diners in the main pub part but not many which is hard to understand as the food was outstanding. Two of the eight handpumps were blanks and the remainder offered fairly similar styles although with a broad range of strength from 3.7 to 5%. No winter warmers, stouts or porters though and looking at their website, which lists the beers that will be available at any one time, no chance of there being any. We left around 10pm and it was fairly quiet by then. Yes as a pub the atmosphere was good, food was excellent, beer condition was good but the choice is what would make me rush back and that was sadly lacking in imagination. Andy niched himself a market place and so with a broader beer choice this pub could really be great again.

What was once THE real ale destination pub in the local area has not had a review for three years and we now know why. Eleven of us set out on a Tuesday lunchtime to see if the old magic is still there. The opening times on the website were wrong, the place was shut and not due to open until 15:45 in the afternoon. This is a hard place to get to, requiring trains and buses for most of us so an unreliable website wastes everybody's time and money. After a long session in the Bat And Ball we decided to pop in. Four beers on eight hand pulls immediately dwindled to two - Summer Lightning and London Pride. Hardly worth the journey. A quick look at our watches told us a bus was due in twenty minutes. We were on it, probably never to return. A crying shame. Slerpy's comment below was right, the end of an era.

I have been using this pub for nearly thirty five years and it is difficult to say a bad word about it.The first landlord that I remember was Andy who introduced some very rare West Midlandales to the South of England,this built the reputation of the pub.Sadly on this visit the current Landlady said that Bathams refused to supply then EVEN though she picked the ales up from them ! The pub is spotlessly clean ,as previously stated the pub has won awards for their food and have replaced the longed for midland ales with Bowman's Swift One. The end of an era.

An update to my last post on here
Following our fab time last visit and hearing the pub has won awards for the chef we wanted to go back
Arrived 2pm on Saturday only to be told, sorry not serving now we want to watch the World Cup at 2.30. The pub was totally empty, we were the only ones in. Followed by children are not allowed in the oub either they will have to sit outside
YOu can imagine my disappointment at that! Had a pint of Breakspears Gold which was spot on as always. Why did they havw to let themselves down like that tho? They didnt even watch the football with us, they went upstairs to watch it leaving the pub empty.....
Felt it was worth updating as customer service should be all day every day and not forgotten because of the World Cup :(

SUPERB! Cask conditioned ales were top notch, 5 on and I tried them all and not dissappointed in any of them, Swift one was my favourite
Whole family had food and that was top notch too.
No children under 15 in the main area of the bar so we had to eat in a side room but as it was lunchtime and we were the only people in that was Okay. We could sit in my restraunt area which is at the rear of the pub too.
Would highly reccomned this pub. Been on two ocassions and both were equally as good. Worth the 30 mile return trip!
