We have been to this pub/ restaurant for a carvery in the past, but on this occasion a Friday there was no carvery on so four of us me, wife and in-laws had lunch from the standard menu. There is quite a wide selection of standard pub grub, some nice platters and light bites as well as a children's menu.... More

Took my daughter, friends and family (dog as well) for a Sunday carvery on her birthday, 26th Jan 2016. I cannot praise the staff enough. Very helpful and accommodating. Home made food in a pub. Perfect. Will definitely be going back. Thank you to the chef for the "Doggy Bag" which lasted the dog about 3 X days:).

There were plenty of staff working I counted 5. we then waited 40 minutes at our table before someone eventually came and asked us if our order had been... More

Seems to be mostly empty compared to previous visits over the years with not much atmosphere. No feeling of being welcome. Feels like intruding on a private family function. Staff all huddled together and felt like an inconvenience to them. Was due to be closed Christmas Eve at 3 I guess for convenience of the staff but not great way... More

Booked room on the afternoon of our visit. Upon arrival at 9.30pm on the Sunday we were informed that they were no longer serving food. The staff recommended that we ordered some indian food locally and have it delivered, which we did. They couldn't have been more helpful and told us that the bar would be open as long as... More

I spent a night here recently whilst on a photography expedition. The rooms are comfortable, good wifi (free) and excellent food. The bar has a great selection of drinks and is a nice place to relax, if you are dining here the homemade steak pie is a must! Very good breakfast with a wide choice. I normally stay in larger...

Paintwork peeling off etc The room was extremely cold when we arrived and didn't seem to heat up to a comfortable degree The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the evening meal and breakfast were...

A good inn with a good selection of local beers excellent staff very friendly and welcoming with a good menu and a good carvery on Sunday would have no problem recommending this inn for food and drink if I didn't live local I would stay for holiday. Good for walks

This is a lovely country pub with friendly staff. There's loads of choice on the menu and the food is tasty but what appears to be the star of the show is the Sunday carvery. Book to avoid disappointment.
