I have to say, I didn't think I would be posting this comment following on from my review a few years ago. However, having had many a lovely Sunday lunches in this pub, I went there recently and I was shocked. The food was very ropey and when I questioned the Landlord on my pint being off, he said it was fine, even though it was clearly off! I have also heard that this pub has gone a bit downhill from other regulars. It's a shame as I once regarded it as one of the best pubs in the area, but may be the success has gone to their heads and the standards have gone to pot. Not good! I give it a two, pub itself having a cosy ambience, everything else is one!

Re visited. Cosy pub sitting by open fire. Had a meal, good choice of plain food at a reasonable price. No loud music belting out, and clientele mainly over 50's
which is fine by me. No game machines so uou can hear yourself think and chat to your mates.

Somewhat rare, perhaps, as something approaching a genuine 'pub' in this area, but it can't be denied that some of the reported shortcomings haven't been removed.

We went to this pub last Wednesday the barmaid was very rude it said on the door that it was dog friendly but I went through the bar to the other side and she waited until we sat down to say dog's aren't allowed there and said well it does there which considering I am not that tall and the sign was a right above your head and not visible at eye level unless you were 7 ft tall but it did have a lot of signs saying children weren't allowed in the bar lo and behold there was a child sitting by the bar so the beer was rubbish and food was barely edible it was all microwaved food would never go to this rubbish pub ever again much better pubs in the area

Went there for a sunday lunch recently as i have never been to this pub and was told how great it was. First up a pint of Doom which was freezing cold and tasteless.

As for the food (which surely has to be the place's bread & butter as you can't walk to it) the potatoes we had were frozen Aunt Bessie's and the veg was from a packet. Had some whitebait to start and the fat was not clean hence i could taste the other chips etc used with the same oil.

Not a patch on the Robin Hood..

A really cosy pub with nice old fashioned pub food and very good beer. Very friendly staff and dog friendly too. Downside is that it's a bit isolated for the casual visitor.

This is one of, if not my favourite pub! I love this pub, it has a warm country feel inside and is nicely located for a Summer stroll through the park on warm days...For me anyway. The food is second to none! Fantastic food, well worth the price! You feel like you have had a meal after you have eaten, unlike some pubs. The drink selection is impressive! Directors always on the pump and also on my last visit they had Speckled Hen, two of my fave beers - Also Doom bar as well as the usual and a selection of lagers. Great locals, great service, great landlord, great pub! The only minus point for me is its on a dual carriage way...but you don't hear anything inside as its not massively busy plus I'm just being a cynic at pointing that out!

Pleasant country-style pub with four ales on tap - Harvey's was very good this afternoon. Old-school decoration, with loads of stuff hanging from the ceiling. It is quite isolated so I suspect it's more of a dining pub than a drinking pub, but well worth visiting.

Great boozer for lunch - over 60's mainly but don't let that put you off. Make sure you take cash or cheque, seen people caught out with this as they do not accept cards. Food is excellent and ale is usually in good condition.

This was once my favourite pub until they started bringing food from the extension to the main pub. They built the extension as a restaurant, why not leave it like that. Anyhow, out of the way pub to take your mistress, in a lovely setting, ideal for a walk in the country before or after a drink. Stands by itself and is only really accessible by car
