This pub provided a welcome lunch stop on the long drive down to Cornwall last week. It had the appearance of an old country pub, next door to a very much older Norman (Ithink) church. There is a car park at the rear, which seems a feature of country pubs. As you enter, the room on the right has some modern looking tables and chairs, all laid for diners. The main room has a nice old fireplace, and leads back to another small room with three standard tables and chairs. The inevitable ceiling beams above the bar counter bore the sort of humorous sayings one often sees - "wine improves with age, and the older I get the better I like it". There are some old, mainly black and white, photos on the walls

There were a couple of ales on - Pedigree and Brakspear's Bitter. The food was fairly good as well, with main courses (inclding the classic pub grub steak and kidney pudding) at around £9 - £10, with lighter meals at £4.75 - £7.45. I guess that food is the main business at lunchtime, as several tables had reserved signs on them at Friday lunchtime. This is a nice enough pub, and did the job of providing somewhere for a relaxing hour and a half, as well as a couple of decent ales, on our journey west.

Once again I find BobOs review spot on. I may as well cut and paste. Suffice to say nothing spectcular, but OK food wise. The two real ales on my visit were Ringwood Best and Hobgoblin, both from the Marstons stable from whom the pub group which owns the pub sources all the beer. Shame, they could do a lot better with more local brews in an area that is fairly sparse on decent beer pubs and would notch the score up a point or two.

Comfortable country village pub. I called in for a swift pint while passing and received a warm welcome and efficient service. There were a couple of ales on, which were very well kept, but I didn't have time to sample the food which, to be honest, looked OK but with a somewhat boring menu. Above average.
