We drove out for a night camping and found this lovely little pub next to our campsite. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, drinks were more the reasonable prices and the food was amazing. We highly recommend the Country Inn platter for only £12, which left the two of us very stuffed. Perfect location for a lazy drive out... More

Stayed here with family last weekend for a birthday and were very pleasantly surprised. Danny and his team were very helpful throughout, nothing was too much trouble and food and drinks were excellent throughout. Food is fairly typical pub Faye but uses best ingredients and cooked very well.

We visited the shady oak for dinner for the first time since the new management moved in. Good value, simple, fresh and tasty food backed up by friendly knowledgeable chatty staff who talked to us about the history of the building and the pub. We will be returning when we are next in the area.
