Dear me, this village is going downhill. This pub used to be thriving on previous visits, but we were pretty much the only customers at 8 o'clock on a Thursday. The village shop has also gone in recent years and the campsite seems underused.

I'm not a fan of the Sardinian food, as there is precious little for vegetarians that is of any interest. Quite expensive too.

The one saving grace is the beer. Very good selection of enjoyable ales in very good condition.

Visited last week with a group of 8 and the Tap Room was just perfect for our muddy boots and rucksacks. We were made to feel most welcome, although there is a posher end of the pub as well.

Unlike the last reviewer, I did enjoy the Nine Ladies Ale and was inspired to hike and see the actual circle afterwards with a couple of pints inside me. Food here is mainly around £6-8 from the bar menu, but huge and tasty portions.

This pub is nearer to the campsite than the Druids and had more people in it on Saturday late afternoon. Food is a £ or so cheaper per course than the other pub. I did not find the Peakstone's Nine Ladies Ale to be as good an offering as the pint I had in the Druids although it was cheaper at £2.90. Lincoln Green's Hood and Longbow were the other cask ales on offer as well as Weston's Old Rosie, a house Perry and a house strawberry cider.

This is definately more of a locals pub than the Druids, and I preferred it... I last visited in 2010, and both food and drink were great. The Belly pork was exceptional. Highly recommended

Very good range of beers and cider/perry in good nick. Food is very good quality and interesting as the landlord is Italian. Good pubs like this one will always survive - it offers something different and meets most needs (apart from Sky, cheap lager and smoking shelters - thank god).
