Change of landlord brings a little fresh air to this incredible historic pub, terrific booze, great food and a proper pub atmosphere. The young lady running it is a treasure. Despite the distance it’s my “local “ from now on! Taxi please.

Had lunch here after a very blustery walk. The lovely fire was warm and welcoming. Bar staff were nice. Food arrived promptly and was home cooked. We all cleared our plates and would return if in the area again.

The most fantastic country pub, now with a Land Lady that is intetested in the pub and the community. Three years of having a absent land lord that did not care. We now have a figure head for our village pub.

No, not yet, there’s another pub of the same name close by that does, but The White Lion at Barthomeley currently only does lunchtime.
