After nearly 4 years since a review was written the pub certainly seems to have changed.

This was my 5th pub of the day.

4 ales on the pumps, I had the offering from Otter which was Velvet Ale and it was very good, the other ales were also proving popular.

Food was being served mainly in the back bar / restaurant are and it looked good.

This pu8b has a lot of character about it. There’s an Art Deco cabinet with a clock on top, a Chess board, dart board and bar billiards' table.

Large fireplace at one end with blacksmiths tools and another fireplace facing the bar. There is also a large collection of pump clips on the ceiling

In the gent's toilet were lots of old cartoons and Wills cigarettes advertisement's.

The other customers were quite friendly but it did seem a bit of a locals pub, however still a superb pub that ended a great day of ticking for me.

The food is very overpriced, the ales are not very good midweek they try to have every hand pump on and they do not have the sales to warrant that.If you ask a question they look at you in a blank fashion. The longer you spend in here the poorer the place becomes.Only one decent pint after a week in the village was a poor performance.

Have to agree with Steve's review, pub great, beer range great, service great & friendly, location perfect - food overpriced and poor.

Tried 4 meals between myself & Mrs during our week's stay nearby and curry was tasteless with tough meat, pork & cider pot tough meat (Microwave, microwave, microwave!), fish & chips - lovely batter but seemed to have forgot to coat the advertised fillet of fish in it. Hey ho. {sigh}

The pub itself is lovely, and the choice of beer is fantastic. If I was judging on those 2 things alone I would give a 8/10.

However the food was diabolical and vastly overpriced. My girlfriend had 'chicken a la king' from the specials board, and it was like a bad school dinner- veg cooked to death, and tasteless chicken in an insipid, watery sauce. My meal wasn't much better.

Turned up on a rainy, october Monday evening. Comfy, cosy and friendly...sat down and enjoyed a huge platter of local mussels drenched in butter and lemon as a starter followed up by a prime platter of fishy goodness with all the trimmings. Garden was a convenient and serene spot for a smoker to reflect the summer they missed out on. A great periodic place to visit and savour the local delights.
