Very extensive traditional menu specialising (?) in pies - proper shortcrust pies with a base and top. Lovely pudding menu, as well as good wine list plus usual bar beers. Everything you'd expect from a traditional pub, only more.More

I visited your pub/restaurant today (asking directions) and liked the interior very much. I asked Liz if I could take a menu away and was told it was available on line. However I have been unable to find one, only Tripadvisor comments. How can I obtain a menu for friends and family to decide whether to come to your lovely looking restaurant?

Description
A delightful 17th Century pub with a great atmosphere, serving a range of real ales on hand pump (Wye Valley, Malvern Hills Brewery, Ledbury Real Ales and other guest breweries). A varied menu is on offer at both lunch and dinner time, serving locally sourced food, all freshly cooked. There is a large car park, lovely beer garden with a covered smoking area (called Woodbine Cottage!). Free camping and caravanning currently offered (pub facilities only). The pub is open plan inside with areas separated by beams and has a real fire in Autumn/Winter (or whenever cold!).
