Another Greene King pub located in the village of Streatley. This one seemed to be more of a locals pub than the Star at Chalton. A group of what I believe were Spaniards didn't seem to be enjoying the spicy chicken wings and sent them back. I'm not sure if they thought it was tapas. But, they clearly weren't impressed. A couple of others had been eating. But there were people there just for drinks too. 5 ales were on - Morland Old Speckled Hen, Greene King IPA, Abbot & Abbot Reserve & St Austell Tribute. The pub is in a nice location. But, my visit was on an icy and foggy Saturday. So, it was difficult to appreciate. The Sharpenhoe Clappers and the Pegsdon Hills Nature Reserve are both nearby.

It was a very welcome haven Saturday evening, after a couple of hours walking in the chill wind from Harlington via the Clappers. The first snow of the night ushered us in to a friendly welcome & options included a table by a nice hot radiator. Beers included Morlands Original & Belhaven Robert Burns. Both excellent, tho Roger jet-lagged from a flight from Japan wasn't able to do justice. The friendliness behind the bar, and from locals, makes this one definitely to go back to on future walks. Food-wise 3 of us really enjoyed liver and bacon, all day breakfast, and lamb shank. One was a bit disappointed by the chicken in batter - but allowed the batter was light & good, just that the chicken a bit tasteless.

Thanks to the team who looked after us, we struggled in the snow back to Harlington, resuscitated at the Old Sun (Taylor's Golden Best - also good) before the train back to St Pancras in driving snow.

Nice, friendly village pub. Restored my faith in Greene King beers.

Concerning hatter90's review, I would agree this pub is very expensive, at about 30p more per pint that surrounding areas. However I've never been one to quibble about the odd price for a night out (although I'd be out of pocket were this my local)!

We have now decided to boycott this pub! On last visit (yesterday) the cheapest pint was �3.55 and that was for IPA!! The price rises in this pub have been astronomical in the last 18 months and whilst Im sure the management will bring out the argument about price rises being necessary this is just plain silly, a village pub in Bedfordshire cannot justify charging the same level as a central London boozer. The average price is now around �3.70 and with other pubs in nearby villages offering more sensible prices it makes no sense to drink here anymore. Whilst this was a good pub it is sadly now too expensive to merit our custom.

Good pub for the area. Nicely decorated, with friendly staff and standard if fairly unchanging selection of Greene King ale (average pint price of about �3.10). Always busy weekend afternoons, and tuesday evenings for the quiz. Often rammed with weddings/christenings going into the church, in addition to commuters from Luton but apparently rarely gets business from locals, which is a travesty seeing as they have one of the best pubs around on their doorstep! Food has become increasingly more expensive (sign of the times!), and main meals are sometimes not up to standard. However the sandwiches are worth the dosh, nice, chunky and filling. Best pub for a 5 mile radius.
