I first visited this pub with my Dad about fifty years ago and have off and on, more so in recent years, popped in for a pint or two occasionally.

I cannot understand the criticisms of this pub. If you want a quiet, really traditional small rural pub with decent local people, an interior which, fortunately, remains as it was probably a century ago (toilets excepted, they are uptodate!), no music, machines or other distractions, no cooked meals, just good honest beer served by two great people straight from the barrels , then this is the place.

I have brought numerous overseas visitors visitors to this pub, all were enthralled by it.

I have never had a bad pint here, but don't forget, real ale is never consistent, the volume sold, the temperature, the weather, the palate, your mood, all contrive to affect the taste of ales, just because it does not taste perfect on one particular day to your palate, does not make it a bad pint.

I hope that they keep it like this for the next 100 years, it is a rare gem. We have enough big family eating out chain pubs and gastro pubs, not enough real pubs run by real people like at the Case.

When my grandson is old enough (or before - soft drinks), I will introduce him to the Case before he is seduced by the chrome and glass and over priced fizz beer joints in town!

Well this place is definitely marmite! Don't expect a warm welcome just plenty of warm bottled beers if your not a real ale fan! We sat in the corner and were forced to listen to the locals gossip, signs everywhere saying your not allowed to use your mobile phone other wise you get fined, we thought was a bit steep! I'm not a fan of obscene language but this also incurred a fine! On our second visit we sat outside which was an improvement, it was a unfortunate that this pub was the only one in walking distance from our campsite. Oh and the opening hours. Mmmmm I don't know how it stays open and to be quite frank I would be warning people not to go!

Unhappy (sober) camper!

Been there a couple of times. At first it reminded me a little of the bar scene in American Werewolf In London where two strangers come in and the whole room goes quiet and looks at them...a little unnerving but maybe I was just being hypersensitive. It's a pub that's slightly off the beaten track after all.
Really excellent ale in very tranquil surroundings. Need one ask for more?
I'd love to see some American tourists wander into there...or better still golfers!

A response (on the 2nd May 2012) from the good folk that inhabit this pub to the posting from 5th October 2009!!

"Hi, 'Did you really write that review for 'The Case is Altered'???

The very fact that you open with; 'Despite prior notification and arrangement that 16 Professional men, on a Golf Society meeting', indicates that you must be a grade 'A' dickhead who has his head stuck up his own arse so far he cant see whats really going on. Stick to gastro pubs, secret societies and pretending you are totally self assured.

If however it was not your good self that left that review, then I of course apologise for getting you confused with a total and utter twat.

Kind Regards

I wish I had read whiteryano's review from Oct 2009 before we visited at 5.40pm a couple of Saturdays ago. Then I would have realised that there is no all-day opening here!
