This used to be known as the Top House ("t' toppaahse") by locals: I don't know if it still is.

I'm encouraged by the reviews: it went through a "down" spell in the 1980s I thought, and I stopped going.

I'll give it another look.

Fantastic village pub- the epitome of Olde England.

Ivan and Linda will welcome all newcomers in the same way as they look after old-comers such as myself. Even the local Village Idiot is made welcome, unless he strays too much from 'normality'.

A rare and fast-disappearing experience. Enjoy it while it lasts. Beer's good too, and Debbie, Juiie and Peter are excellent bar staff, as are others whose name I can't recall owing to the excellence of the ale!

I've been drinking here on and off for the past 30 years and I'm only 45! hasn't really changed at all except for the odd coat of paint and some light bulbs. Don't go in so much now since it was taken over by GK, but the beer is always good, (but too cold, no need to chill real ale boys) probably thanks to the cellar hewn from the sandstone beneath the pub. Nice beer garden out the back and a fair sized car park make it worth a visit.

Another pub taken over by GK but what a fantastic little pub full of character from the authentic beams to the uneven red tiled floor. 4 cask ales on (all Greene King but all in top condition) The pub was taken over from a managed house to a tennancy 2 years ago & its great to see it has been kept as a real locals local. We did not eat, but the food was home made and looked as well as smelt good. large beer garden and smoking shelter.

Local, in days of yore, to Td and other friends on Sat crawl, sadly now in the hands of the enemy (GKipa, Abbot), although the Hardy&Hansons Bitter & Olde Trip were in good nick, albeit too cold (turn that chilling system down we dont need proper beer at the temperature of the smoothflow abominations!). Seems a solid community local downstairs bar was full of more senior drinkers (21:30), upstairs has a nice old tiled floor, bits of tables & stools, the guys tell me it hasnt changed at all, & hoorah to that. Duck beyond the bar to the dart snug but youll need to practice- the locals look pretty good! A large plasma sits in a corner & I expect it is judiciously used, next along is a large portrait of local-born Henry Ireton, a senior figure in Cromwells civil war & eventually his son-in-law. We had to wonder whether the unicycle in the corner was some sort of sadistic pub challenge, but it turned out the owner was doing his own crawl, and had managed 14 pubs thus far- on a unicycle!!, extraordinary.
