Dec 2018, 7.2m motorhome. Great spot, very friendly staff and a v nice pint of pedigree! Half a dozen vans here tonight which is great ro see. Dog friendly local pub, this is the sort of place that belongs on SFS. Highly recomend, and if you dont fancy a meal or drink please pay the 4 quid as they provide freah water, waste water and toilet disposal so its exactly what us MHs have been asking for!

Last minute decision for a weekend away. Called on Saturday morning to book. We wanted EHU and when we arrived, John had a lead all ready for us to just connect. Spent a quiet night in a lovely location. Great service point. The pub is very friendly and Liz and John both make you feel welcome. The food is excellent and great prices. We were lucky enough to catch the Classic Car gathering on Sunday morning. Plenty of walks and Hermits Cave is a must Perfect overnight. Thanks to all the team

Stayed her Wednesday night with our 2 dogs. Agree with what everyone has already said. Ate in the pub so stay was free, good value, nice drinks, helpful friendly owner. Pub, grounds and garden very clean and tidy. Field at the side with footpath going across to trees for a quick walk with the dogs but there are footpaths all round the quaint little village. Didn't see any shops so make sure you have what you need. Take care on approaching village as the road narrows, would stay again

Great value for money...only £5 Inc ehu. Lovely landlord...told us all about the history of the area and recommended a good walk which took in the local points of interest. Food was great value for money also and felt very secure pitched up there for the night. Will definitely be back. Cheers

Very friendly welcome as we arrived, and although car park was busy landlord made sure we found a suitable place.
Pub was busy during day but quieter on the evening. We ate in the lounge, food was average with limited choice.
Nice circular walk through village and through hermitage wood and past hermits cave and the ruins of an old Abbey.
Would recommend

First ever try at a Pub-Stop and what a great Pub to start on. Host could not be more welcoming and has really good water/toilet facilities for Motorhomes – see picture.
Car Park is tarmac and mostly flat, just need to pick the right spot. Electric hook-up is available and it’s all you’ll pay for providing you eat/drink in the pub.
Will definitely use again, perfect North/South stop not far from the M1 Motorway.

Beautiful pub, good food and the Landlord John was so welcoming and helpful and was one of the most welcoming pleasant landlords we have met. We initially meant to stay one night but stayed for three instead, John simply said that we could stay for as long as we liked. Would highly recommend this pub.

What a super Country pub John and Liz entertained us for the unfortunate Six nations beating by the Jocks. Sausage and Onion on Brown were very tasty.Saturday night celebrations with family visitors.who were also made to feel welcome. Food and service was great.Owner was very efficient at explaining Elsan and water points.Great weekend, Minus three degrees toasty warm and plenty of public footpaths. Well done.

We broke up our journey to relatives in Hucknall by staying a night at the Carpenters Arms. We were well looked after by all concerned, a hookup was brought out for us and although we didn't need any other facilities they were pointed out to us just in case. The food was good and reasonably priced. If you are wondering why we only rated the location and view at 5, it's a bit out of the way and just overlooks a messy field. When we were there they were preparing to be a CL

A lovely warm welcome from the bar staff, followed by the landlord checking that we were ok and did we need anything? Lovely guy.
The Elsa and water points clearly marked, EHU available if you need it, limited number.
John is hoping to have a camping field ready for next summer.
Very picturesque pub frontage, will definitely return.

The landlord was very welcoming and knowledgeable of what Motorhome owners need, cassette and grey waste points and fresh water point. Pub - good food, 2 pints and a main for £15, BOOM, definitely go again.

Very rare that you find a pub and landlord that knows what facilities we need this one is top of the list
Really modern pub that retains the separate room i.e. Lounge and tap room excellent food and yet when all the landlords alterations to the car park and camping area are complete it will be a great (if possible) addition would recommend it without any doubt
