    Have some fun where J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis used to discuss writing.

    Love to sit with a drink and read in this pub. Such a special feeling to read the Hobbit here knowing the story just born at this place!

    Hands down, the Chicken and Leek Pie. The best pie that I have had in England.

    Try and get a seat in the cubbyholes at the front of the pub, but beware of pickpockets! Two girls had their purses stolen while I was there (wisnae me guv!).

    Great beer! Bring a copy of lord of the rings with you for the full experience!

    More than £10 for 2 drinks and a pack of crisps? This is why I don't usually come here.

    Went for the name and the stigma with Lewis and Tolkein but tonight the bar was pretty bare but smelled of warm spiced wine so that was nice.

    If it looks crowded at the bar then head to the back where there is lots of seating.

    Fish and chips r great as are the lamb shanks

    Good real ales here - the pies are recommended too. Look out for the alcove just past the bar, where there are photos and plaques commemorating C S Lewis and J R R Tolkien, who drank here often

    Steak and Ale pie... oh so good. Have eaten there every night this week thus far.

    Jeff · August 19, 2010
  • Dave I.

    Try mulled cider when it's available: tastes like warm liquidised alcoholic apple crumble!

    Легендарное место.

    Merece la pena disfrutar de una pinta con amigos contemplando el interior del pub. Sacar un buen tema y acabar echándose unas risas. p.ej. se puede comenzar con Tolkien (tan vinculado al pub).
