I'm still trying to calm down after a terrible experience in this place yesterday. It looked quite promising from the outside and first impressions were good, with 3 Rebellion ales on the bar - IPA, Blonde & Roasted Nuts. Unfortunately for my wife (and my wallet), the cider was Symonds, which she is not particularly fond of. Instead she requested a Tia Maria with Coke. Ordering this seemed to meet with a little confusion from what I assume was the landlady. Yes it's the liqueur you can have with coffee. She served it with a small amount of coke as requested and all seemed well. I spotted some chilli scratchings which looked interesting and ordered those too. Then came the moment of horror. My half of Roasted Nuts, a Tia Maria and coke and some scratchings had somehow come to £10.20!! I asked for the breakdown - £1.90 for the ale, £4.50 for the small spirit, £1.80 for a splash of coke and £2 for a bag of scratchings. I was gobsmacked. SInce when does a 25ml spirit cost £4.50 and since when is a splash of coke £1.80?! As for the scratchings, you can get small meals for that price. I reluctantly handed over £11 and the woman had the cheek to shut the till without handing over the change, until I had to intervene. She turned the Roasted Nuts pumpclip round after serving me for some reason too. Was it off? If so, why was it served? I have to say, it did taste fine though. My wife savoured every last moment of her £6.30 drink. Food prices looked reasonable here. But they turned a couple away whilst we were there. I'm surprised they manage to do any trade. But the two sports cars presumably belonging to the owners in the car park indicate that they do, or do they just prey on unsuspecting visitors like myself. I truly wish I'd declined to pay and exited when informed of the total. Rip off place.

oh dear... the phrase 'footballers wives' comes to mind when you step inside and see the interior.

Excellent food in my limited experience, and hand pumped ales plus other beers on tap. Rather 'foody' for a country pub - 'jus' mentioned on the menu and wooden boards instead of plates. Not too pricey despite the slight pretentiousness though, and good, attentive service. I just fear that the drinking trade which would support the pub, might not materialise in sufficient volumes. It needs more events in the form of live music: jazz nights, folk events, as well as the genres already offered. I wish the landlord/lady the very best of luck because every village deserves a good pub.
