Visited here for a family meal on a Saturday night. Food was exceptional - we had fish and steak followed by scones and Eton mess - all cooked to perfection. Would definitely return if we were in the area. Friendly staff and a pleasant atmosphere.

It's great when reviewers leave honest comments about their experience. This was a truly fabulous find, Offered a cottage for the night, unexpected as we had booked a double room. Our Hosts were welcoming, our evening in the pub was enjoyable with the superb breakfast in the morning setting us up nicely for the day ahead. Thank-you Tripadvisor!

If a pub is judged by the friendliness of the landlord and the 'locals' this must be one of the best in the land. Despite the place being busy we were made to feel welcome right from the start. The beers, all local, and the wine were superb - we'll be back for sure.

Downstairs is a large living area with TV, and sofas. Then you have dining chairs and table. In another area downstairs you have a fridge, kettle and microwave. What more could you... More

We stayed here for one night whilst visiting the area. The room was clean and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and made us welcome. There is superb food served in the bar and a hearty breakfast cooked to order.
