This is one of our local pubs and one which is highly endorsed! I have read several reviews and an stunned at some of the negative comments. Each pub in the village offers different things. The Woodruffe is an amazing friendly and reasonably priced pub. I go in most weeks and have never encountered any swearing etc just good old fashioned hospitality! The owner Gaz will do anything for you so just ask.....They don't offer pub food but there is a Chinese which seems to do a good trade. Don't judge a book by its cover and go in and enjoy the service....,.

With 5 Staff and a dozen kids in tow needing a quick Hot chocolate before back to the youth hostel, i popped in to see if they would/could accommodate this. The idea of a bus load of kids at 8pm for hot chocolates seemed perfectly normal for them. They had to go across the road to get the chocolate and here is the best bit. They offered to give big bowls of chips to the kids and because the adults and a few others were paying for bar drinks they threw the Hot drinks and chips in for free. Also the staff the owner and family all wanted to chat to us and find out who we were and what we were doing.
The children in question are a group from a Special school with life issues. this was a superb way for them to see for themselves that strangers can be warm, kind, generous and take an interest in them. in return our boys showed a level of respect that even surprised themselves. Thank you kind people of the Woodroffe. there is some good Karma coming your way (and if it hasn't happened yet - next year we shall return on our annual residence away and visit you; bad luck!)

Dropped in during a walk for a pint.
Pretty busy around Saturday tea time.
Only had a drink and have to say my 'Speckled Hen' was 'spot on' so for anyone that likes there real ales, I'd give this a visit.
Must be an ok pub as quite a few 'locals' were in there too.

Had a delicious ploughmans and steak here in december, nice and busy for the festive period. Great food and very informed staff, good beers and very cosy by the fire.
