We used to drive through Clifton daily and we're disappointed to see the pub closed with 'The Great Wall' erected round it, so we were so glad that it had been taken on by a Clifton resident and transformed into a welcoming, relaxing and charming place. We called in for drinks to have a nose at the new place. Excellent choice of wines and beers, so we came on a busy Saturday night on the off chance they might have a table for two and were told there would be a bit of a wait, we were happy to sit in the garden with a very nice glass of Rose. The wait was minimal (still on my first glass!!). Seated and order taken promptly. .We were not disappointed, the food was delicious, portion size good and staff attentive without being intrusive. Would definitely return, in fact I did for a mid week lunch, 2 4 1 offer with lovely choice of the usual pub classics, portion perfect for lunch and again , service spot on. Topped off with cuddles with the pub dog. Well done all, our new local, despite living 12 miles away! !

Food and ambiance very good but the bed in our superior room was so hard I had an almost sleepless night and my wife a very painful shoulder in the morning.

This pub has been reopened for about 11 weeks. The building has been refurbished to a high standard, yet retaining old charm with a range of non matching chairs and odd tables.
We popped in for lunch and were not disappointed with good choice of snacks/sandwiches, main meals and a generous two for one offer. The staff were charming and obliging - they deserve to do well.

We stayed for one night, as we where local the next day for business. 5 of us stayed, there is plenty of off road parking, rooms are clean fresh and modern. Food and drinks choice is very good and the staff are very helpful and friendly. We would all stay again in the future.

My family and I went for supper on Saturday night. Understanding that the pub has recently been acquired by new owners I would allow a few hiccups, however, it wasn't good enough at all. The building is beautiful and the staff friendly however they are incredibly disorganised, we watched our food being taken to the wrong table and were checked back on by three members of staff at times. The Diet Coke tasted like pump cleaning fluid and the white wine was very warm. The food was clearly frozen or of poor quality, especially the burger which was dry and tough. The food is unfortunately rather overpriced for what we got and I would have expected much more. I hope the owners are willing to take on board suggestions as the pub has great potential and could be a fine dining/gastro success - good luck for the future!
