Booked a table for 5 for Mothers Day with the family, excellent food (roast beef was amazing) Vegetarian option as well of Ravioli which my wife enjoyed and they also do a smaller size for children. Even though the place was totally packed the service of the courses and drinks were served in perfect timing. Would 100% recommend and can't... More

Stopped for one night to break the journey home, the evening menu had a nice selection and the meal was very nicely cooked and excellent value for money, likewise the breakfast, couldn't fault any of the food. Very friendly host and staff especially the resident dog. Just disappointed with the room it was basic and quite expensive for what it... More

Used to go here several years ago but a change of hands wasn't good but now new people are there and the food is excellent. Visited for sunday lunch and had a very nice meal, nicely presented, very tasty and plentiful, will definitely be going back again in the near future. Had roast pork with crackling, apple sauce, roast potatoes,... More

This isn't an ultra smart restaurant with a bar attached. This is a village pub with locals at the bar bantering with each other but they don't stop talking as you walk in. Instead everyone is welcoming and inclusive. Lovely views from the front window so sit there if you can find room as the back restaurant part is a... More

Group of 7 of us (4 adults and 3 children) all enjoyed a lovely Sunday lunch. We were made welcome as soon as we arrived and the landlady showed us to our table and took our drinks order. The service was very good from all the staff and we never had to go to the bar once, everything was brought... More

The staff were warm and very friendly during my stay there, breakfast was plentiful and in the main pub area. My room was a twin and was adequate for one night although it was on the small side and had no double glazing so was cold overall, but the heater that was provided in there took the chill off during...

Been staying here for the last 4 weeks after trying a couple of hotels prior. Great bar and the food is brilliant (especially the lasagne)! Serves a brilliant pint of Timmy Taylor landlord. Rooms are homely, kept to a good standard. Bathroom cold and shower a bit dodgy because of curtain rather than cubical. TV very small which is the... More

It's been 20+ years since I last visited this pub, wow what a transformation. A friendly welcome from owners and staff, a very good meal, not rushed at all. The food was freshly cooked and we actually asked to speak to the chef at the end of evening to thank him. A young chef with a huge future ahead of... More
