I always like its very much stand alone corner position in what you could call the middle of nowhere. Very friendly place, always a good atmosphere to it, the majority of folk are locals one way or the other, great service and an extensive menu...More

Table booked for 18 today. No call to say the place is closed. Hope your husband gets well soon but can you refund my £50?

Not suprised, the place is a shambles, owners never there, food shocking, understaffed and long delays for food, abandoned bar when you arrive. Sad to say but the place deserves to go pear shaped

Hi Deb T - alternatively you could contact A2B Radio Cars Ltd T: 0121 733 3000 I use these all the time from Hockley Heath to the Airport and that costs me around £12.00 and Lapworth is only a couple of miles from us.
