Unfortunately, this is very disappointing as our only village pub - a cross between something out of The League of Gentlemen and Straw Dogs.

A visit here is irredeemably blighted by several toxic locals. On the one side is an ever present drunken Northern Irish guy who seems to have been quite understandably 'retired early' and spends his days drinking and getting in people's faces. Then there is some aggressive, lumbering halfwit who arrives in a Stagg plumbing van that is also used to swerve home and who spends the intervening period glowering, jostling people and attempting to intimidate or start a fight. Don't Stagg have a policy regarding the use of their work vehicles? I certainly wouldn't use them if they employ idiots like that. The landlady complains that the locals don't use the pub. Is it a surprise? It is a real shame. We make the journey to the Red Lion in Preston so we can have a civil drink without being harassed by knuckle-draggers.

I have called in here 4 times, and each time it has been a really nice, friendly pub. Has some decent ale - Timothy Taylor and always a fire going. Locals have always been friendly, too. For me, a perfect pub.

I can thoroughly recommend the maidens head which is in walking distance... felt like i'd walked in during an arguement (30/10 afternoon)... The beer i rushed to drink to get out was actually very good! If i lived closer I'd probably make the effort here as it seems to stay open very late - however as a visitor its the maidens head for me

Nice old Inn but really only for locals. Very Friendly pub. Nice Village.

Quite nice pub, although not not my style. Looked more of a football TV type of place at first but enjoyed a nice pint there nonetheless.
