We have just spent a weekend staying in this lovely old pub. We have family living locally so we only ate one dinner here - which we all agreed was really good. The staff are delightful, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The room was very pleasant with everything you could want - extremely comfortable bed, nice fresh cotton linen, large bath sheets and a big dumper shower. The breakfast was traditional and well cooked.

The food for dinner was extremely tasty, I had a very generous portion of satay chicken for starters followed by scampi and chips. The chips were to die for and rank among the best! All very filling so didn't manage a pud!


Great atmosphere and the new landlords deserve great success, which I have no doubt they will achieve.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms to choose from! We had the room on the right of the staircase and would thoroughly recommend it.

Dear Louise r

Thank you for your your lovely review, so pleased you all enjoyed celebrating Fathers Day at the Who'd Have Thought It, appreciate your comment regarding the price of the steak, we favour excellent quality local meat and this does sometimes cost a little more but we believe it's worth it. Hope to see you again soon
Kind regards

Came here on a Friday lunchtime. Very few people in. Firstly, the menu is a very strange mix of traditional English and Malaysian/Thai. There were no specials that we were made aware of. I had ham hock, egg and chips and my friend had the burger. The meat with both meals was fabulous - as the burger was cooked to order it took a while as it was so thick and the ham was huge warm tender chunks. Both came with chunky chips & salad. This might go some way to explaining the high price of both £11 & £12 respectively but to be honest I felt it was pushing it. The setting is lovely although the pub was very cold, due mainly to the age of the building and the thick walls. The toilets were spotless, and there was plenty of parking if you can squeeze into the carpark (the entrance is quite narrow). The staff member who dealt with us was also very friendly.
However, and this was a major concern which ruined our meal, and made me question some of the establishment's practices, a family came in with a baby. They brought the child's changing mat which they placed on an adjoining table and took over the window seats blocking any view and the little sunlight there was. They also had a some kind of bouncer for the baby and a blanket which they also put on a table. They clearly had no respect for other diners and the baby was quite noisy so we moved (but could not escape the noise of the baby or the family). It's in no way the baby's fault obviously, but the Inn was clearly totally unsuitable for their requirements. Now I would have expected a place which serves food as expensive as this to have serious consideration for all of its diners. It is clearly not the sort of place that you would expect to find children with food of this nature. Either this is a gastro-pub type place and you can justify those prices by keeping patrons in line so everyone can enjoy themselves, or it's a Harvester and you let people wave their used nappy bags around where people are eating not both (and yes, the latter did happen). At no point did the staff approach this family and ask them to change their behaviour which leads to the possible conclusion that this is deemed acceptable. I find the thought that I ate somewhere where such outrageous basic hygiene rules were ignored by customers and not challenged by the staff quite sickening. My mother was extremely ill when we got home as she was so disgusted. Apparently the pub is dog friendly too so I wonder what the hygiene standards are regarding that.
I was really looking forward to this meal but am so disturbed by what I saw I can safely say I won't be returning or recommending.

Hello Vic,
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on the pub and your experience. I remember your visit and am deeply saddened that you have left us a one star review for something that was out of our control, unfortunately Chloe was by herself that Friday and therefore did not see what was happening at the table next to yours as you were sat in the middle room of the pub, not the bar area.
We take every diners experience into consideration so it is a big shame that it was only at time of paying (as that is just as I got back to the pub myself) that your mother mentioned to Chloe to the goings on at the table next to yours, if Chloe had seen something she would absolutely have asked the other diners to have more respect. It is out of the question that we would allow for another table to have such a negative impact on other customers, though as nothing was mentioned beforehand we weren't then able to act upon it and ensure you enjoyed the rest of your meal in peace. Both myself and Chloe were mortified when we heard what had happened and assured your mother that that kind of behaviour was not of the norm and the area would be thoroughly cleaned before anyone else sat there.
Glad that you enjoyed the food we have to offer however, everything on our menu barring just one dish is all made in house with a lot of love, care and attention put into it.
Take care and in the future if no staff are acting upon something please assume they haven't seen what's going on and it's always worth highlighting a problem before your meal is over so as to ensure the problem can be dealt with there and then.
Many thanks,
Olivia, General Manager

We only went to this place to eat because the venue we'd visited during the earlier part of the day had a coach party filling its café and we didn't want to queue up for ages to be fed.
I am so glad we did.
Friendly, welcoming staff, gorgeous old building filled with little quaint rooms and décor and delicious food.
A little more expensive than we'd normally pay for a lunch time meal but we all thoroughly enjoyed the freshly cooked and homemade food.
The triple cooked chips are the best I've had anywhere and the panna cotta was lovely.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our food and we're hoping to return again soon.
