My husband and I had a meal here and stayed in one of the rooms last night. It was fabulous - the meals were superb (we both had the ribeye steak) and the accommodation was perfect. We could not believe how reasonable it was to stay there as the quality of both the meal, breakfast and room exceeded our expectations.... More

Still waiting for arkells to tell us how they've resolved this situation. Went with friends and the landlord started slandering our friends names and swearing at us because we went to pay up before we had finished eating as he didn't want to sell us tequila even though we were eating a meal. Landlord clearly has a problem with people... More

After a long walk, 6 of us, plus two toddlers planed lunch here on Sunday. It looked a delightful place and was clearly busy, so we sat outside. Having waited 5-10 minutes to be served at the bar, we inquired about the real ales on tap (a perfectly fair question given they were local), but the barman seemed to be... More

2nd time staying here, as good as our first visit. Wonderful evening meal, excellent breakfasts, lovely place for relaxing break. Rooms located off the car park so you awake in the morning to the sounds of birds singing. Room very clean and cosy, lovely hot power shower, large bath towels, could not fault. Pub owners very friendly

Former stable block converted into 4 self-contained rooms. Nicely furnished with nice touches, ironing board and plenty of sockets. Pub has a roaring real fire, good beers and good food. Breakfast well cooked with nice local ingredients. The host and hostess and all staff I met were very friendly. For the same money as a standard chain, I had a... More

Had lunch here today, would we come again - you bet!! The Chicken Caesar Salad was the best I have eaten, my partner had the Steak and Ale pie which was really good served with proper chips. We had to have a dessert as they served knickerbocker glory, a long lost dessert!!

I booked a table for 6 people to celebrate my partner's 25th birthday and the recent birth of our first child. We were seated and happy, having just finished our starters. One of the party offered to buy 3 shots of tequila (one for each of the men in the party) to celebrate my partner's birthday. He went to the... More

Very welcoming staff and a superb choice of Sunday roast - Beef, Lamb or pork, all served with roast potatoes and Yorkshire puds, which you don't often find unfortunately. Delicious lunch served with plenty of choice in veg. Thoroughly enjoyed by all 4 of us. We will definitely return.

We walked from the next village to this pub at lunchtime today, a beautiful sunny Monday in between Christmas and New Year. Very disappointed after an hour's walking to find it shut, with no indication of opening times on the door or explanation for the closure. We have eaten here before and it was perfectly pleasant, with a good log... More

I go here fairly frequently for both business and leisure. The food is always of a very good, informal standard with a warm welcome. I will continue to visit and am looking forward to the Winter months when the fire will be lit :-)
