This place was used for filming 'Midsommer Murders' and it retains that atmosphere; life threatening.

Things are so desperate that the villagers now intend to buy a pub in the next village so that they can have a decent pub in the locality.

I hadnt been to the cock and rabbit for about 10 years prior to having lunch today. I can now remember why. The beer is OK, I had a pint of IPA and there were a few choices. The food however, was awful and overpriced. The staff were very cold and the place was as silent and empty as a tomb (1pm on a saturday and empty so something must be wrong) I heard one couple ask if the owner knew of any walks in the area and he just replied curtly, "No". The lady then said to her husband "so that would be a No then!"

The inside reminded me of a working mens club with a centimetre of brown looking residue on everything, My wife and I got a bit fed up of shoeing away fruit flies from the food also.

In short, It could be a gold mine in this location, but it needs 50k spent on a refurb and a serious attitude adjustment. Never again in current status.

Passed by this pub on a hike. Lovely spot on beautiful Lee village green. The beer seemed OK, Morlands brew an ale for them especially. I believe the pub brewed its own at one time. I can't comment on the food as I did not partake.

All four of us all felt bad vibes with this pub.
We got no greeting whatsoever, no friendliness there at all.
Toilets were filthy, pub dirty, glasses dirty.
We certainly didn't want to eat there, we just wanted to get out of the place.
It was such a shame because the village is lovely.
It needs a lot of tlc.

Had not read the reviews before my visit and though I could see it was not everyone's idea of the perfect night out, I actually liked it a lot.

Beer was ok, reminded me of the saying that no beer was bad just some better than others. Italian food was well presented and substantial, though admittedly none of my party tried anything that wasn't Italian, why would you? It quite clearly is an Italian restaurant more than a pub and though the decor was a little tired, it was not unpleasant.

The place was an experience very different from any other that comes to mind, I really liked the village atmosphere and found most of the locals very welcoming too. I have visited very quirky pubs before, in fact I look for them, it is because of such places that we have a choice when we go out, rather than spend our lives in characterless theme pubs.

It reminded me of the Duke of York at Iddesleigh in Devon, though admittedly the beer there is exceptional. If it lacks one thing that every pub needs, it is a good real ale, so if you're reading this, you might look at Ruddles, London Pride or 6x to lift trade.
