Good Pub Guide Recommended
In a quiet village tucked away in the Forest of Dean, this is a bustling pub with a good mix of both locals and visitors. The flagstoned main bar has cushioned wall and window seats, traditional pub tables, a log fire, four real ales from breweries such as Bespoke, Stroud, Wells & Youngs and Wye Valley on handpump, several wines by the glass and local cider; background music and bar billiards. On the right, there's an attractive beamed restaurant with interesting prints and bric-a-brac, and on the left, you'll find additional dining space for families. There are some picnic-sets in the garden and a children's play area, and at the back of the building is a terrace for popular summer barbecues. The little church above the village is worth a visit.
