Expecting standard pub grub upon entering this country pub, it was a surprise to bite into the crispiest of batters and juiciest of scampi within. Exactly the same with the chips; mouthwatering golden shells with crumbly potato at the centre. The Date had a similarly satisfying experience with a chilli con carne; pleasingly presented and just hit the spot. Staff... More

Popped into this place for a quick evening meal. Expected some of the usual pub grub, but was served some top notch, well cooked, fine food instead. The service was attentive and joyfull, this made for a good evenings relaxation and we certainly left feeling better than we expected. Will definately be back soon.

Have eaten here several times, including Saturday evenings and Sunday lunch. Always enjoyed our meal. Staff very friendly and dogs very welcome. Several of our favourite walks incorporate this pub! And no problem with muddy boots. Log fire a bonus as well.

Had a few meals here last year when the current landlord and landlady took over and were really impressed with the quality of the food and the warm welcome we received. Had Sunday lunch there last weekend, the first visit of the year, we weren't disappointed. It was just as welcoming and the food was excellent. The starters, roast dinner... More

One of the most welcoming pubs I've ever been to. Our 3 year old son preferred to sit with the owner rather than us! Ideal Location for walkers.Games on hand, great beer, good food. Go there! So good we went twice.

We arrived soaking wet from a torrential downpour - all welcomed warmly (including our wet, smelly dog!) by very friendly, prompt and efficient staff. Service was quick, food was excellent - the best pub food we've ever had. Lovely, warm atmosphere - felt immediately at home. Will certainly be back - can't recommend enough, especially to dog walkers! Thank you... More

A great welcome from the friendly staff ( and the resident Welsh Terrier)! The service was prompt and efficient, but not overbearing and I have to say the recommended local beer (XB) was perfect. The quality of the food was over and above what we expected, my steak was cooked perfectly and my partner had Scampi which she says is... More

We called in on New Year's Day and asked if they were serving food, it was mid afternoon, and we were lucky enough to be informed that we had just managed to get the last order before they were due to set up for their New Years Eve dinner. I had the lamb and black pudding hot pot, and my... More
