Really good beer but the worst service I have ever had in a pub for meals. I went there with my wife, son and daughter in law in the May bank holiday and waited 1 1/4 hours (yes you read that right) for a sandwhich.

Worse still, the wifes sandwich which was supposed to be roast beef with gravy, in a baguette turned out to be a bit of dry lamb (ran out of beef) between two equally dry slices of multigrain bread (ran out of baguettes, ran out of gravy), so dry in fact that it fell to pieces when she tried to pick it up...and amazingly they charged 6.50 for this sandwich.

Overall I would say this pub is OK if you just want a drink, but I will never, ever go there for a meal again.

Very nicely renovated inside, good food with varying menu. Music nights etc.. And the main thing - really excellent beer.
Friendly landlord & staff - genuine enthusiasm for what they do.

... going there tonight actually! Hurrah. :-)

Just went to the excellent 'Indian Curry' evening last night and thought this place deserved a mention. Been here a few times and the food has always been fantastic. They always do different speciality food nights on Wednesdays, often food which isn't available around here like Filipino and Japanese. And then it's pub grub at the weekend. The beer from the Allendale Brewery is also getting better and better. I sampled the new Beauty last night and it helped the curry go down nicely! Great food, great Ale and friendly service in a cosy atmosphere - what more could you ask for!!

Superb pub in a lovely setting. Serves the excellent Allendale Brewery Beers. My favourite's Wolf - a strong dark smooth bitter but they do refreshing light stuff like Golden Plover and Allendale Bitter or try their superb stout Tar Bar'l (barrel).

Their food is lovely and when in season you'll get grouse, pheasant and salmon at good prices. Its got a real fire going, stone flag flooring - all the usual country cliches but good ones at that. Good setting Good Beer Good Food and friendly staff. The only reason its not 10/10 is that i cant walk to it.
