WHAT THE CUSTOMERS SAY - SUMMER 2016
Met with six friends for a bite of lunch. Lovely old village pub, not a flat screen TV or fruit machine to be seen. Good choice on the menu and we were all well fed at very good value. Look forward to returning soon.
This is a LARGE DETACHED 16th Century property of the ‘classic’ Warwickshire pub design, constructed of MELLOW COTSWOLD STONE with a tiled roof, the newer addition being of sympathetic coloured brick under a matching roof. The pub has a natural relaxed atmosphere and unusual layout. THE MAIN BAR (40) has a high pitched ‘Dutch Barn’ ceiling with milk churns and earthenware containers to its lower beamed aspects. A deep rich patterned carpet runs throughout with areas of stripped timbers in harder wearing areas. The room ‘sports’ a popular brick fireplace and is furnished with assorted polished wood tables, chairs and stools. Some of the walls are exposed original brickwork with a beamed wooden shelf running around, displaying bric-a-brac etc. BAR SERVERY is of timber construction with polished counter and T&G back bar fittings, bar stools to its front. UPPER LOUNGE has a timber floor and ‘throw carpet’; it is furnished with settees and low coffee tables. A most MAGNIFICENT STAINED GLASS WINDOW provides the WOW factor to this area. From here you drop down to a further dining area (4) often used for private occasions.
DINING ROOM (36) is bright and contemporary with an INGLENOOK FIREPLACE to one end. Furnished with polished dark wood tables and upright chairs, it has a low beamed ceiling and deep-set windows. A separate area for a table is set into an old porch way (very popular).
