Good venue to watch tour de france got there early managed to get a table in the front beer garden where you could see the race but it soon got very busy waiting up to 20 mins for a drink but the staff were very efficient and freindly. There were a number of pump clips behind the bar and they were advertising guest beers I'll return on a quieter day to see if there is anything interesting on

Ex Whitbread house, very nice garden at the front of the pub. TV inside for sports. Largish red brick building with interesting gables. Quite busy for late Sunday afternoon. Atmosphere of the village is very nice, but to be honest there is little in either the Hoodeners Horse or this pub to attract me back.

Badger (Hall & Woodhouse) - Flowers Original (subsequently contract brewed at Brains)4.40AcceptableIt has been so long since I have had a pint of this, that I have forgotten what it is supposed to taste like. Deep copper colour with some sweetish malt and some yeast and some hop. Pretty unremarkable
