|Eartham is a 'Brigadoon' village - time has passed it by. It does have a bus service but you have to book the bus the day before and even then it is subject to variables. You may wonder how a pub in such a place can survive these days but there is obviously a reasonable local trade but others would have to come by car. All the more reason therefore for the pub to stock non-alcoholic beer but it had 'run out' so I settled on a pint of ginger beer to quench my thirst after walking and before driving. The bowl of soup (which cost £5.25!) that I asked for took over half-an-hour to arrive during a not-very-busy lunchtime and had I not paid for this when buying the beer I would have got up and left. Nice welcome but sloppy service. I hope not to find myself in Brigadoon again.|

|I laid what I still thins was fair critiscism of this pub a couple of years ago, it has changed hands on a couple of occassions since. I have recently eaten there and I have to say that I enjoyed an excellent Sunday lunch. It has had a complete change of management and staff and is as good as the old 'George' well done James and Anita|

|Definitely an Anglophiles' pub - and all the better for that. All the beers are local - even the lagers. |
And, even more impressively, the wine list has an excellent selection of English wines of most kinds offered at very fair prices (although, sadly, prejudice still reigns about English wine with one customer remarking, "I don't drink English wines - they're too expensive" without even checking the prices!
The only styles of English wine I didn't spot were sparkling rose and sparkling red - although still red (a rarity in English vineyards) was on offer. Sadly the house wines (the only ones available by the glass) were not English and, as I was driving, I couldn't manage a full bottle.
My one small criticism - if you are part of a party (I was one in a party of 51) then the food service is a bit slow.

|Found this by accident yesterday, had the best pub lunch ever!!! Rump sandwich with goats cheese, sounds awful tasted like heaven!!! Club sandwich huge and succulent. Even the salad dressing was gorgeous!! Eton Mess was worth travelling 40 miles for! Cocktails served with a smile and the beers good too. Didn't even have a problem with the loo.|
Told the landlord we would be back, and we will!!!
