It remains a Vintage Inn, those temples of mediocrity. Other than the removal of the branding nothing seems to have changed since Soup's attendance ten years ago. Outside you can enjoy views over the huge car park from a couple of grassy bits, or sit in the rather scruffy courtyard. Well you could sit in the rather scruffy courtyard except that half the tables were uncleared from lunchtime, they must be taking lessons from Wetherspoons, this was at 4 pm on a Friday.

Any confusion with JDW evaporates when you reach the bar, over eight quid for a pint and a half of bitter and a packet of crisps. Girl serving managed about an inch short measure, back to JDW again. Anyway I stood and stared silently at the glasses for a minute or two which prompted a supervisor to come and top them up.

We had Landlord, which was fine, other choices Bass and Doombar. If you've got to take your in-laws for lunch I'm sure they be pleased. You can do better if a drink in a nice pub is your project for the day.

A large detached Vintage Inn chain pub, eatery and B&B. A former Georgian styled coaching inn, the front facade (phone died before i could get a photo) is in cream render, with a coach entrance, neo-classical porch and Georgian windows. At the back, which is in undressed brick (see photo) there is a patio area. This is also the main entrance now.

The interior is the usual Vintage Inn style of open plan, but divided into areas. A family foody kind of place these Inns are as eclectic as they get and as so, are fun to visit. I didn't eat so can't comment on the food. The decor is a mix of yellow, cream, white, clay, coffee wood panel and beams, flag floors, wood floors and carpet. The walls are a gallery of cartoons, prints and photogrpahs - including the pub and village. The service was fine and the place full of diners. I saw no TV nor heard any music.

Beer; tap stuff, with Peroni. On handpull there was Thornbridge Kipling, Bass and Everard's Tiger. Sadly, i had a traditional ginger beer!

A busy place, but Vintage is a chain that at least tries to give pub/eaterys a feel rather than the dull vase-ridden plastic affairs we often get.
