Lunchtime visit as the BA was closed. More a wine bar or coffee shop than a pub. Nice decor but I was not impressed at £2.15 for half a pint of locallly brewed, average beer. Sheps still I believe - but doing their utmost to hide the fact. Sorry but you're just not my type luv.

About 6:15pm. I had tried the Barbers Arms which is supposed to open at 6pm but there was no sign of life so I came here earlier than I had originally planned. My pint was filled right to the brim with a meniscus which impressed me until I noticed that everybody else was getting pints with about half an inch of head. Had they received a telephone call form the previous pub I wondered? The chef's home made dog biscuits looked really appetising, there must be some lucky hounds around here.

So this is where everyone one in Wye was. It was rammed but we got a seat at the rear side by the fire.

Afternoon visit and fairly quiet. A few of us met up here for a pint before heading off to the nearby Barbers Arms.

A few in the restaurant area when we went in for a lunchtime meal. We enjoyed the fish and chip option and the service was helpful and friendly.

Late morning and we came here to fill the gap between our train arriving and the Barbers Arms advertised opening time. Very much a food led pub but we were made very welcome.

11:45 Went to Wye to visit the micro pub, as that opens at 12:00 came here for a swift half first. Gastro pub with more emphasis on cakes than ale. Opens at 08:00 sells alcohol from 10:00.

Lunchtime visit. An increasing number in the restaurant where we had a tasty meal. Pleasant service. Since there is a another Sheps pub in the village the Landlord managed to negotiate a non traditional pub sign to promote individuality.
