Good beer but disappointed with the food.

A bit pricey for what it was, and a little pretentious. Ravenously hungry, "venison pie" sounded just the ticket. It turned out to be a smallish quantity of tasty venison stew put on a litlle rectangle of puff (or was it filo?) pastry, with another piece of the same pastry put on the top. The pastry was much so, I took the top bit off and had it for dessert. Quantity was not generous. Price was about 10 (including a little mashed spud and some rather tasteless boiled veg).

I left hungry, and wondering how anyone could call that thing a pie, or think it was worth a tenner. It's a beautiful little country pub, what a pity the food isn't just hearty, simple traditional English food!
