The Axe is on balance the best pub in heath and reach, no airs and graces about what it is and what it is trying to be. Basically a solid pub run by honest hard working brothers and family. Great atmosphere and all the clientelle are friendly and welcoming.

Very good, freshly cooked food at reasonable prices. Only two real ales but overall a wide enough drinks choice. Good car park. Not a luxury venue though. Didn't use accomodation.

Stayed here for a weekend for a wedding. The rooms are in the middle of the car park (cars driving past a couple of metres away) and right opposite the beer garden, so it was very noisy until.midnight. The room was very hot with no fan in the bathroom. Only a small window to open in the bedroom, so I struggled to sleep. However the bed was one of the comfiest I've slept on. Be warned that breakfast is a small packet of cornflakes in your room, with milk in the fridge. However the original fridge had leaked all over the floor and the replacement froze the milk solid. I ended up going to one of the other pubs for a very nice cooked breakfast.

A proper village with sensible prices that all can afford. Polite friendly staff, good selection of drinks large open garden area and a large pay area for children too. This pub has a great reputation for Sunday roasts which again are a healthy size and will not break the bank. There are rooms to rent if you're on a business trip or need a room for the night. They are in a detached purposely built building in the carpark and look spacious and clean. There is a pool table, large sports screen and jukebox in the rear bar too. Overall this pub is affordable and caters for everyone's taste and puts on a great Sunday roast and lots of other food. Great pub with a lively friendly atmosphere. Perfect for Heath and Reach.

We stayed for one night - convenient for a one night stay if having a party at the pub, wouldn’t go out my way to stay there otherwise. Walls were dirty, only 1 mug for tea/coffee for a 3 bed room, half a roll of loo roll, mattress had no protector on so was extremely dirty. Fridge was dirty. Overall the room was dirty but convenient.
