|Five of us had our lunch stop on our walk here, arriving- admittedly without booking- just after midday. Not a member of staff to be seen, the Marie Celeste came to mind. Eventually a young lady appeared who had limited English; clearly the bar was not her forte or a skill she had mastered, and so serving a pint of Cross Bones Rebellion was a challenge.|
In due course a young man appeared to assist- although more familiar with the bar, he seemed equally at sea understanding what was needed, again through limited English. His claims to eight years' bar experience frankly surprised me.
Ten minutes later a third man came through the door, who I subsequently learnt is the barman.
At this point the service picked up; the Cross Bones Rebellion was good if not outstanding, and there were three other draft beers available. The food orders came reasonably quickly (although there was brown bread was initially confused for white), and the quality good.
Not a terrible experience, but equally not an impressive one.

|well, i feel sorry for the locals of Ibstone, becuase the only pub in the area is one of the most souless venues ive ever been in. it seemed more like a premier inn hotel bar than a country pub. ikea style pine and white paint everywhere, and the cd of choice playing was a saxophone/muzak pop song cover album.... shudder.|

|Came here for an evening Wedding reception last Saturday. Quite a spacious rambling pub which is good for this sort of thing. They had 3 ales on: Rebellion Blonde, Short Pint (which was eventually replaced by IPA) & London Pride. The beer was pretty good but most of the time had to request top-ups which were done without problem.|

|Lovely pub, very nice decor, good beers on sale (Rebellion). Lovely food in restaurant, very nice staff. Bedroom basic, quite small but clean and functional. Would certainly recommend it.|

|3 real ales - Pride, Rebellion Blond and a Vale (I think). I drank the Blond which was good but expensive. Food from both the Thai and resteraunt menus is very good. I didn't go looking for them, but couldn't see any evidence of pinball or bar billiards.|
