we were in town for the scarecrow festival so popped in as they had a beer festival on ,beers were very good and served by volunteers outside but the regular staff inside the pub seemed slow and easily confused by any request.

Strange pub. Old worn-out settees in the main bar. I didn't try them - I don't think I would have got back up.
Slight smell of dog wafted across the room now and again, (might have had something to do with the resident 'Great Dane').
Beer from Tring; Brock Bitter and Yorkshire's Yorkshire Terrier.

It is open once again.

If in the area, a visit to the Rose and Crown, in the adjacent hamlet of Trowley Bottom, is well recommended; it's one of those should-see-it-once places.

A rural gem of a pub which time has passed-by. The sheer minuteness of this pub makes it a significant survival. There is a small public and a minuscule lounge – the door between them has been removed but the opening has not been enlarged. The copious veneered panelling; bar counter on the left; bar back shelves and the brick fireplace all look to date from the 1950s. Mrs Wilding is in her 80s and very frail so the pub is run by a band of locals / friends. As a result, it has rather limited opening hours, best to ring first to check.

Currently closed for repairs following a fire I believe. It’s covered in scaffolding, half the roof is off and there’s a notice on the door advising that the site is unsafe to enter. There doesn’t appear to be much structural damage so hopefully they can get it open again soon.

Is Scarecrow Festival the only time people come here ? The good point - there was a mini beer festival on... had a pint of Harveys that was nice even if it was in a plastic 'glass'. The bad - had some of the Paella that was supposedly cooking in a big pan outside... it was tepid and awful. Would expect better considering it was Scarecrow Festival and the turnover of food should be higher than normal. Doesn't bode well for anyone eating at less busy times.
