I joined friends for a lunchtime meal. We were greeted warmly by the staff including my friend's two dogs. There was no rush to order, we enjoyed a drink, ordered food and were served with three delicious meals. The atmosphere and decor were very inviting.

Don't mean that horrible lager, the beer is the best in the country, don't know the reason, it doesn't look like a great beer pub. Must be the way they keep it. Good for takeaways.

Great place to stop for lunch on the A303. Friendly efficient quick service. Somewhere between pub and restaurant menu and well done. Only problem is leaving to go west which involves an interesting crossing of the main road, not to recommended on a busy summer Saturday I would think.
