There's plenty of detail in the reviews below so I'll limit myself to saying that this is an attractive and traditional pub in a pleasant village where we received a warm and friendly welcome.
It's a Marstons boozer, although this isn't advertised outside, so beers were all from that stable: Pedigree, Banks Bitter and Sunbeam, Hobgoblin, Ringwood Boondoggle and Jennings Cocker Hoop were on when we visited. The latter two were well kept and slipped down easily.
A trusty spot for a decent pint.

A characterful Marston's house,situated overlooking The Green in this smart village.The original building is clearly old with a very low ceiling,while to the left of the entrance an extension has created a more spacious area with it's own bar access,a real fire,darts board,flat screen (off during my visit) and gaming machines so nominally this is more of a public bar.To the right are a nesting of seperate sections,all very charming with the far room having mainly dining tables.There is a bar access to this side as well and it is worth checking both bars to discover what the six handpumps are dispensing from the Marston's portfolio of breweries.My Jenning Cocker Hoop was crisp and in top condition justifying the listing in the 2014 GBG.In good weather there are bench seats to the front of the pub which overlook The Green.
Although food is generally available it doesn't dominate and with the muzak at low volume together with a friendly welcome,it felt a good place to sink a few pints.A short walk from the Trent and Mersey Canal,I can see myself coming back when next in the village.

The epitome of a country pub, despite being in Weston. It is a cream rendered cottage styled Marston’s pub/eatery, with lower level extensions either side. Facing the village green, it has a patio area and a little well.

The interior is an open plan long room, with part partitions. The décor is a mix of red, white, cream and wood panel, with wood ceiling beams. There are a few little fireplaces dotted about. The main dining area seems to be at the far right end on entry, the bar area, with darts and TV, with Sky Sports News, to the left, but you can eat anywhere, yet it retains its pub feel, rather than foody. There are mirrors, old photographs of the area and general prints on the walls, along with local footy team pictures in the ‘bar’ area. The food is straight forward but perfectly fine. The service is very friendly, the clientele maturer and a mix of diners and drinkers, there was no background music.

Beer; tap stuff, with Banks’s Bitter, Ringwood Boondoggle and Pedigree on handpull, the bitter was decent.

A nice place and worth time for a drink or food, especially as the Saracens Head is worth a visit as well.
