    Consistently good food, good prices and very friendly service make this local restaurant worth the drive. Good for a Sunday lunch but also great for a meal for two. Easy parking and a quiet location. Recommended.

    We had a lovely peaceful stay at this Inn. Arrived on Saturday lunchtime and although, it was the lunchtime rush the owners and staff were polite, helpful and friendly. Having warmed up with a drink and a sit by the fire we were shown our room. It was clean, pleasant with good facilities including toiletries, hairdryer, tea/coffee/water/biscuits. We had dinner...

    This is a review of the bar and restaurant, not the hotel. I have visited as part of big parties and most recently as a couple. The staff are always welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. It has character, but is also clean and comfortable. This week we sat close to the lovely fire. The food was delicious, my... More

    Came here during a busy Saturday evening with lots of Christmas parties but service not affected. Special shout out for the young girl, Bethany, behind the bar .. always smiling and made us feel very welcome .. would return just for her hospitality and bubbly personality!

    Went with friends last night and the only problem was there was only one piece of cod - but not a problem because nobody else wanted it! Fried Hake Fillet was very good and all of the food seemed well planned and prepared.

    There are lots of great deals here! A group of us went for the 2 for 1 burger night and it was fantastic. Food is great and the portion size is huge! It's nice that they don't change the meal when they have an offer in. There is a good selection of wine and beer. Friendly service.
