UPDATE: A detached pub and eatery, with a nice sized patio area at the back, and a small one at the front. The site of this country pub has been occupied for a long time, but currently, it only appears on the maps as a pub from the mid-20th century. The pub is in three parts, stepped in height and in white render. The interior has a couple of rooms. off to the right there is a small room, which is in green and green wood panel. It also has a TV (not on) and was totally deserted. The main room is an L-shape, which is part partitioned by a range of arches - still in Tunisian style! The decor is white artex and some brick, with beams and 70s brasses. There is a brick fireplace. There is a TV, which had a music channel on, softly. There are a few pictures, which seem to be clocks as well. We ate here and the food was really good. The service was friendly and the clientele seemed to be a mix of diners and locals - and friendly too. Beer; usual tap stuff with Doombar, Wells' Good Stuffing and a pleasant Bateman's Rosey Nosey. I am miserable, but this was one of the best Xmas meals i have had - not scrunched in - with a decent beer to enjoy. I will return.

(SEP 2009) A really nice little family orientated country pub, yet just on the outskirts of Burntwood. The 'gaffer' was very friendly, there is a nice beer garden and play area for younger children.

The inside was clean and a little like a hotel in Tunisia, with the alcoves inside - crossed with a 70s pub, with jugs hanging down behind the bar.

Didn't eat, but they do food

The pub had the usual taps, with a couple of real ales, namely Marston's Pedigree - apparently, i missed Hobgoblin by a day!

Would go back

Called in a couple of weeks back - Nice place with a massive garden.
Had a pint of Timmy Taylor Landlord, which was on excellent form.
Did not eat there, but there were many people that were, and the food looked pretty good.
A return visit is definitely on the cards.
