On arrival you can’t help noticing the pub's large car park, nor the Shell filling station, Starbucks and other mini shopping mall paraphernalia over the road from what is [probably] a Victorian coaching inn.
As a result of a 2013 refurb, the inside is pretty much as described earlier: a trendified interior, with a modern boarded floor, cream of mushroom soup paint, with white wainscoting and similar ceiling, lighting coming from modern sconces, then modern chunky wooden furniture and strange hanging fabric blinds, with décor comprising trendy framed prints, then black and white framed prints of the area from yesteryear; the whole ensemble looked much more like a restaurant than a pub. There’s a rear snug called ‘The Snug’ which appears to be more traditional, but with bare brick walls, so perhaps not.
On arriving, I was confronted with a tedious ‘Wait Here To Be Seated’ sign (an indication that this is indeed a restaurant and not a pub) and I was duly allocated a table in an almost empty pub, next to a scruffy bloke in high-vis clothing, watching loud YouTube videos on his phone. I asked to be moved, but was then seated at a table for eight diners, which shows the pub has little confidence in customer numbers, who were a mixed local bunch, one with an incredibly loud and annoying little dog, which really shouldn’t have been in the restaurant area.
Ales amounted to Ludlow Gold and Wye Valley Butty Bach on very good form, with the price incorporated into the food bill, served by a polite and accommodating barman then waitress.
This place is jut about ok, but it’s not homely for the drinker and I do appreciate that the place is in Woofferton, but the continually barking dog was something of a deterrent, but it’s worth a stop for a swift half whilst the missus fills up with the V-Power next door.

Big old Victorian coaching inn on a major road junction. lots of mushroom and cream paint inside, aimed squarely at the more affluent diners. Drinkers are not really encouraged, you are ushered to a table the minute you enter. Decent pint of Butty Bach and a fish finger sandwich hit the spot, but i wouldn't rush back due to the lack of atmosphere.
