bob and friends visited on a Thursday evening in October 2008. The guest ale was Tribute (£3.20/pint). Other beers available were Young's Ordinary (£2.95/pint) and Bombardier. The wine list is good, and a pinot noir tried by Ewan on another visit was very decent and around £6.25 for a large 250ml glass.
A bar menu was available, with pizzas, sandwiches, and some sharing platters, as well as a relatively standard normal pub food menu.
Ewan visited for lunch on the Sunday before Christmas 2008, and the place was fairly full by 12:30pm -- they'd opened up several rooms for dining. They wanted a deposit for the special Christmas menu, but the regular menu was available to us, and included several different roasts, as well as pub basics. The vegetarian roast involved artichokes and mushrooms in puff pastry, and was tasty (though the chopped olives in it didn't really add to the flavour), coming with roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and vegetables with gravy. Service was prompt and friendly.
Also a hotel (29 en-suite air-conditioned rooms, according to their website). According to the 2009 Good Beer Guide, quiz night is Sunday and there's a real open fire and a heated, covered smoking area.
Accessibility: Shallow step at the entrance.
