Nice Sunday roast washed down by a £3 pint of Banks's Bitter. The Hobgoblin was £3.30 and the Marston's EPA £3.20.

As I have found before elsewhere on my travels, RogerB gave an accurate description of this pub in 2007. Parts of the pub date back to the 1600s apparently and we sat near the covered well and enjoyed a Winter Afternoon Tea which consisted of good pea soup, sandwiches, a cream tea and cakes. The Jennings Redbreast was in excellent condition at £3.10 per pint and there were other pump clips for Hobgoblin, Banks's Bitter and Cumberland Ale. The food menu consists of ordinary pub food at usual prices although there are also a few Greek dishes to choose. Friendly, efficient service and, overall, a nice traditional pub which I found preferable to the nearby GreeneKingified Stag at Redhill P.S. The pub has its own website with good photos on it.

Drove past this pub about 10 times and wrote it off as a pensioners eating house not worth bothering with, until a read the reviews below and gave it a go. Its actually quite a little find. Very good, traditional pub grub along with some very nicely done curry stuff as well. Good Landlord/Manager and staff. Very nice, unpretentious little public bar with a good crowd of drinkers and very reasonably priced accommodation, especially if, like me, youre a contractor staying away for work. Oh, and they have a lovely pint of Banks on as well as several other guests. Just goes to show, you cant write a pub off until you have given it a whirl.

Run by a Frenchie but don't let that stop you coming here because this guy is easy going and will genuinely look after you. He's ably assisted by a couple of gorgeous blonde french birds - how they came to be out here in the sticks is anyone's guess. Definitely worth another shufty. Oh yeah the beer - not too much choice really, can only remember Pedigree and Bass being on ale-wise but they tasted alright. As for the pub itself, it has plenty of history and its traditional look is what you'd expect to find but what you might not expect is the bohemian vibe of many of the patrons. Must be something to do with the potato wine the farmer folk are on rounds here.

A typical country dining pub situated between Stratford upon Avon and Alcester. Originally a small farmhouse style building, over the years it has been extended to the side and rear and now has a quite spacious interior. The main bar at the front is fairly small with a plasma screen and seems to be where the locals generally gather. A decent beer selection: 4 Real Ales Ulay, Theakston, Speckled Hen and Shakespeare Taming of the Brew were on during our visit (the Shakespeare brewery is a few miles down the road and the apparently the pub always try to include 1 beer from their range). The area to the side is a mix of diners and drinkers with another plasma screen and various hunting pictures. With its fairly bland colour scheme it comes over as the least interesting part of the building. To the rear of the bar is a narrow flag stoned passage that would originally have been exposed to the elements as it contains a well. This has now been glazed over and is used to keep fish making a fairly unusual and unique feature. On the wall is an interesting display giving the history of the pub name. Beyond this is a is the main restaurant area in what was presumably a separate building before it was all roofed over and knocked through. The carpeted restaurant is spacious and quite welcoming with the usual lashings of brickwork, beams and fireplaces. It was initially our intention to have a meal here but the menu was a bit limited for Mrs B who is a vegetarian but looked okay for me, being a flesh ripping carnivore. Given the time of year I did not get a chance to enjoy the gardens but in summer months it would appear to be a pleasant place to while away a couple of hours. They also do B&B at a quite reasonable rates if you are looking to stay in the area.
