Superb local pub, landlord behind the bar and landlady in the kitchen. food is excellent, fresh cooked, varied menu and specials board. Mixed grill for £16 is fab. Beers - 5 pumps, Upham Punter, GK IPA, Woodforde Wherry, Tribute, Humpty Dumpty. Well kept by a landlord that clearly cares. An oasis in a local desert, not in the CAMRA GBG down to a technicality (truth be known, down to a mistake by the local committee). There is nowhere else to drink locally.
