Sadly Christine and Ron have left.
The pub is now a restaurant with a bar, and has lost all its' charm and has a very strained atmosphere.
The food is still first class, I am very pleased to report.
The beer has changed. Doom Bar and Spitfire are now on the pumps. Sadly, not as well kept as the beer used to be, but on the bright side the GK IPA has gone.
I am going to have to lower my rating from 9 to 6

Thought it about time I bought my review of this Pub, up-to-date.
Nothing has made me change my mind about anything in my review of last year, and we have been here quite a few times since.
The Pub itself, is off the beaten track and is usually only found by luck or recommendation.
Christine and Ron are excellent hosts, providing excellent food and service, and nothing is too much trouble.
Their Staff are a great bunch, too - Always up for a laugh and a bit of banter. When they get to know you, the standard of abuse is very high, but good natured. They give as good as they get.
Still only Adnams Bitter and GK Abbot, on the pumps, which is a shame. However, both are kept in consistently great condition.

This place is certainly NOT expensive. You get a good portion for a reasonable price.
My advice - Have a starter and a pud, or a main. Not too many can manage all three courses, and this includes the local farmers.
Admams and Abbot are the main real beers on offer and they are kept very well indeed. The Staff are very friendly and helpful too.
Further advice - If you want a juke box, pool table or Sky Sports, don't bother. You won't like it here.
