My wife and I called in here for a beer after a lot of driving to Stowe. We had a look at their menu and decided to stay for something to eat, since their menu looked so appealing.
Their lager was great nd the wine was very good. The house Chardonnay was crisp and fruity while the house Merlot was rich and full-bodied with ripe fruit flavours.
The clam chowder was thick, creamy and very satisfying. Being an "Irish" pub their entrees sounded very appetizing. My wife had the meat loaf which had a spicy chilli glaze with tiny shreds of onion spread throughout a meaty loaf. It was perfectly complemented by the buttermilk mashed potatoes. I had the shepherd's pie (since they'd run out of sausages for the bangers and mash), which had juicy chunks of lamb in a rich gravy with corn. The gravy seemed to have a minty flavour which went well with the chive infused mashed potatoes and the finely shredded red cabbage. This had been braised in cider which gave it a delightfully appley taste.
The food and service was everything you would expect from somewhere that catered well for tourists.
