You’ll drive past a hundred unassuming, relatively bland looking village pubs like this around the country, never giving a second thought that they might be special. This one is ... great service, fab food, imaginatively served. Welsh lamb and salted caramel cheesecake a must!

Six of us ate here with our dog on a Wednesday lunchtime. We were on a family break and ate out at different places everyday and this was definitely the best food, really good. Well worth a visit very friendly atmosphere.

Rural country pub in the centre of the village of Staunton just short of the Welsh border, specialising in local real ales and good quality food sourced locally whenever we can. We have a 5 star food hygiene award. We are on several walks in the Forest of Dean and welcome walkers (even with muddy boots!) Dogs also welcome. We have a large beer garden where you can relax in good weather. Also there is an in-house café and shop for purchases of basic shopping and local produce. For events and opening hours please check the website as these change during the seasons.
