|OK so finally went last night. |
It's a gastropub/restaurant as much as anything, but the bar is equipped with some very nice sofas.
Well equipped bar had a couple of beers I've never heard of one (sure one was a bespoke beer with the pub's name) but I was on the lovely Stoford Press Cider. Also a strong flat cider I've not seen before on draught.
Food was fairly safe gastro pub fare off the main menu - IMHO too expensive for what it was.
However, the lunch menu at £9.99 for two courses looked pretty inviting - I'll go back and try that.

|Recently re-opened looking more gastro from the outside, haven't been in.|
N.B. also renamed the Gamekeeper.

|Currently closed, claiming to be an available business opportunity according to the poster in the window, but has now been stripped of anything that made it look like a pub.|

|On arrival I was met by a group of yoofs and a large German Shepherd dog gathered around the entrance smoking and looking unhospitable, but I have to say that first impressions, on this occasion, were unfounded. Inside was pleasant, and the barmaid was friendly and polite. I had an excellent pint of Piddle, washed down with a similar amount of Palmers. There were teenagers being loud around the pool table, but it wasn't anything untoward and I didn't feel in any way uncomfortable despite being the oldest person in there by at least 2 decades.|
It's a pity the last few posters' experiences weren't as positive as mine, but I note that they are all single posters who made their comments on the same day and wonder whether, given the implied nature of the occasion of their visit, how objective they've been. I note in particular that Mrjslater had all of 28 minutes to read the previous post before changing his mind about coming here. Looking back a year from that date, I see that James55Westhead, someone who has reviewed a reasonable number of pubs, had a much more positive experience.
For what it's worth,I'm happy to go back next time I'm passing because it's a normal village pub with no frills that sells decent beer.
