Went here on a Saturday evening for a family meal. The place felt wonderful and cosy with a real fire. Very toasty, so jumpers are not needed. The food was absolutely amazing and there was a reasonable selection of beer and cider on pump. Really enjoyed our evening and will definitely be returning.

They also had lovely clean and up to date loos, which is rare in an old pub like this.

This isn’t somewhere you’re likely to stumble across by accident, tucked out the way down some twisting country lanes, but it nonetheless always seems to be busy. It’s a reasonably attractive stone-built pub that looks as though it was converted from a row of cottages at some point in the distant past.

It’s a large pub with lots of different areas and but still manages to retain a suitably cosy country pub ambience, with a low beamed ceiling, red patterned carpeting and a mixture of chunky wood tables and small copper topped ones. The walls are mostly exposed stonework and there was a real fire burning away.

There was a very extensive menu, divided in to sections such as starters, mains, baguettes, oggies, “from around here”, “from over there”, kids, etc. There was also a small specials board. Something for everyone it would seem. Whilst the portions were extremely generous (over generous in fact) and were tasty enough, they had the appearance of something fresh out of the micro-wave.

There’s a pleasant beer garden out the back, and even a miniature train running through the grounds and around a lake, which is popular with the kids. There is also a bridge over the “railway” to a kids play area which is an interesting feature.

Beers on tap were Jem, Butcombe and Otter. Good choice of ciders with the local Broadoak, Thatcher’s Dry, Pheasant Plucker and Blackthorn.

Went here on Saturday night for a get-together and meal. Went via the lane from Chelwood Bridge, and after all the heavy rain we'd had, the water was a bit deep in places.

Otter Ale was great until it ran out (the place was very busy) so went on the Butcombe Bitter, which was excellent!

Certainly worth a visit.
