Have trouble relating what I saw today with the editorial comments in the Guide. The snug bar is pleasant enough but it is small. The other public bar eating room is totally lacking in charm and atmosphere. It is a barn of a room with a pool table, a juke box and a piano, not a room we wanted to spend time in. We had soup which was at best OK with good bread and a hot peppered beef roll. The bread was good, but the beef within was inedible. It was tough with unbreakable sinews and was cooked until all beef flavour had gone. I took it out of the roll and tried to find edible beef with little result. The waitress collecting the plates did not comment on the fact that 95% of the beef was still on the plate. The diner at the next table had the same reaction to the beef in the beef roll.
Service was OK and very friendly and the beer was good.
Not a complete waste but we went out of our way to go there because of your description which to me is unjustified, at least in October 2016. We will not return.
What a pub should be like !! Serving a fine selection of real ales, includind there own brew, great food and friendly un-pretenious service. A must for all ale fans.
