We went to this pub for lunch. We ordered sandwiches to eat, I had the bacon, brie and cranberry but all I could taste was thick butter and nothing else. The staff were polite and friendly. Not sure whether we would visit again.

We called in here 2 weeks ago on our walk from home.The staff always friendly and we always try to use front room as large room can be rather warm.Good choice of meat and large selection of veg,must say more than any carvery we use. We don't use every week but have nether been let down.
