Must read Roger Buttons review. Not sure if they sell crisps, but there was definitely mini chedders on the bar!

Nothing more to add to the other desriptions except watch your head on the ceilings and the Uley Pigs Ear was in top condition.

Great village pub and a destination. You could tell my all the teary eyed middle aged men looking around the rooms.

I'm not going to repeat the descriptions below, espicially Roger Button's contribution, which is a perfect account of treasures within and without. It is indeed almost the perfect Olde Englishe Pubbe, and somewhere all pub lovers should seek out if they possibly can.

I say almost perfect. And unlike most others reviewers, I'm not going to give it ten points. Why? We called late on a midweek afternoon and it was brilliant. If we were an hour later we would have found every single table reserved and have to stand outside in the rain with our beer; any enjoyment of the wonders within denied to us.

Do make every effort to visit, just be careful to time your visit appropriately.

A very traditional and “olde worlde” looking pub in this attractive village, it is apparently owned by the National Trust which should give some indication as to it’s provenance, and it certainly looks the part with it’s rather wonky walls and attractive, timbered construction. There is also a good sized beer garden at the rear of the pub.

Internally, it has fortunately retained all of it’s character, rather than suffering any “refurbishment” as is the case with so many old pubs. There are a number of different rooms, and these are all broadly similar in style with a flagstone floor, black beams on the ceiling and leaded windows. Curved wooden seats with a high back were an unusual feature, and almost formed their own partitions within each room. The bar counter had a narrow strip in front of it, barely enough room to squeeze past anyone who was already there, and this seemed a popular spot for the friendly locals and their dogs. Elsewhere, a cosy old room off to one side included an old dresser with an extensive collection of pewter plates and an open fire with a collection of brass candlesticks on the mantelpiece. Plenty of jugs were hanging from the beams. A smaller snug also included a stone fireplace.

The menu looked to consist of a good selection of “pub grub” dishes such as ham egg & chips, fish & chips, burger, pie of the day, etc., and these were mostly priced around a tenner. A few more adventurous options were available for a couple of pounds more, and on our Sunday lunchtime visit several punters were enjoying a roast.

Beers on tap were Wye Valley Bitter, Thundering Molly, Uley Pig’s Ear and a trio from Purity – Saddle Black, Bunny Hop and Gold. Ciders were well represented with Thatcher’s Heritage, Cheddar Valley, Stowford Press, Thatcher’s Gold and Lily the Pink. All in all, definitely a “must visit” pub, and well worth making a detour for.
