Lovely thatched pub in a nice rural location, that is home to the Gribble Brewery. There is also a nice garden at the front. Inside is quite cosy and all of the ales are produced by themselves - Reg's Tipple, Woodpecker's Hole, Plucking Pheasant, Pig's Ear & Gribble Ale. Two more were being pulled through. There were also a couple of ciders - Lilley's Rhubarb Cider & Sandford Orchards Berry Lane. I'd not had the latter before. So, I had that instead of trying the local brews. Lovely pub. Although it did feel a little cliquey.

I came across this by chance on a busy Friday evening - but once past the crowd of large but amiable regulars the service was excellent and the food and drink just what we wanted - simple but good ingredients. I'd definitely go again.

This seems to be a pretty contraversial pub (perhaps there is little else to do in Oving) so I'll offer you my impressions from having visited there roughly half a dozen times a year for the past 5 or 6 years.

Walk in - 3 or 4 florid locals at and around the bar eye you up and then continue their slurred conversation.

Approach bar - a very young barmaid looking slightly haggard from all the regulars' jokes and leers tries to force a smile.

Select drink - this pub has many beers. Frankly too many. All have 'humorous' titles. I generally pick one at random as there is little difference in taste, merely alcohol content.

Sit down - either in the cramped interior or the pleasant garden and wonder how such a beautiful spot can have generated such an average pub...

The what beer ?

Further to my previous review, seems a pity that today's landlord has to labor under the disparaging comments inherited from previous landlords. Can we not wipe this site clean and start again?

I have been back several times and each time has been a good experience. Can I recommend the 'Fuzzy Duck' beer next time you come.
