This area has a lot of very competitive pubs but this one does not appear to be keeping up. The medieval banquet decor and wooden seats are dated, as is the menu with breaded scampi or gammon steak both served with frozen peas. The chicken...More

Why do people think they can review a business when they have no intention of using it. Just to be clear you were caught climbing over the chains to get to the longnor road. You had no intention whatsoever of using the pub.
