We have had a wonderful family meal this evening and this Inn deserves full praise. We suggest you come and try their new menu as it is excellent. We were made so welcome and nothing was too much trouble by all members of staff.

Friendly pub offering good pub food in heart of Forest of Dean. A little quiet when we were there so not much atmosphere but I am sure that’s not always the case.

Took my dog in and they had blankets to put on seats for them which is great. The food was fab and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Would definitely recommend that you try this pub when in the area.

Description
Welcome to our award winning, family run, village inn. We're on a mission to offer the very best pub food in the Forest of Dean and on our menus you'll find a wide choice of quality home-cooked meals - ranging from steaks to curries and seafood. On Sundays, we also run a popular carvery from noon until 3pm. All our meat comes from butchers within 4 miles of Parkend and we support many other producers in the Forest of Dean. At the bar you'll even find local real ales on tap, as well as a wide selection of other beers and wines. We have disabled access and we welcome families, mountain bikers and walkers.
