Lovely country pub, but felt a bit food orientated. The area is stunning, and this pub fits nicely.

The pub will also organise a horse drawn cart for a local pub crawl which sounds amazing.

Stumbled upon this place by accident while visiting the totally over-hyped Sanctum. What a find! Real pub food, no gastro nonsense, so the price reflects this. Wife and I went for a meal a few evenings later, three courses, beer and wine and paid less than 50. Staff can be a little young and inexperienced at times, but the general friendliness from behind the bar is tip-top.
If you want a nice country pub at pub prices, you'd be hard pushed to find better. Sundays can be busy so always book, plus the locals can get a bit noisy at the weekends - its still worth the trip.

By coincidence I visited this pub for lunch with a friend exactly a year after the last comments dated 16 October 2007. On the face of it, things were not at all promising; the only beer available on tap was John Smith's, and the only food on the menu were sanwiches. There was also an air of indifference from the barmaid. It was therefore perhaps unsurprising that the place was virtually deserted.

However- the reason that they were out of beer was that they had been drunk dry on Monday and Tuesday evening with a popular band there one night and football on the TV the next; and the choice of sandwiches at 4.50 was extensive, and proved to be delicious. Definitely good value for money, especially as a portion of good, hot and dry chips with the sandwich was only another 50p.

There was also a pleasant fire burning with a fine cat in front of it in the main bar, although there was no such warmth in the dining area as "the chimney's blocked".

So, although I have difficulty recommending it with any vigour and enthusiasm, things at Uncle Tom's are better than they look at first and the garden at the back is attractive. However, for lunch anyway, not a place to go for a particular pub atmosphere.

Used to be a lovely quiet pub serving a great pint of Benskins a few years ago - unfortuantely for the last year or it seems to have been taken by a bunch of loud mouthed chavs - a real shame but avoid like the plague

I found the pub by accident recently, called in with a friend, had a couple of pints and a leisurely chat in a relaxed atmosphere for 2 hours. Charming. Will return in Spring to eat in the beer garden. If you are nearby and like real ale, give it a try. You won't be disapointed. Uncle K
