E TA left this review about The Good Companion

A modern roadside pub/eatery sitting in its own grounds, currently run by GK. There is a good sized car park, which has an area marked off for motorcycles, and there is a covered smoking terrace at the front. The inside has been informally divided into various dining and drinking areas and is predominantly carpeted, making it feel like a hotel lounge rather than a pub, but in a good way, cosy and intimate rather than pretentious. This illusion is spoilt in some areas, though, by the presence of TV screens showing Sky News, a cash machine and gaming machines. The staff were very welcoming, though I wouldn't have wanted to get on their wrong side. Five ales on: Landlord, Oompah, Oktoberfest, Old Speckled Hen and GK IPA. I went for the Landlord and found it in good condition, certainly good enough for a session. Surprisingly good as GK pubs go, I'd be happy to drop back in when passing.
