Eight of us went for Christmas lunch today and it was lovely. Great duck pate starter and lovely displayed melon. The main course was delicious and huge servings. The traditional Turkey dinner looked so tasty , vegetables were cooked to perfection and the clean plates proved that. I had the beef which was accompanied with a rich gravy and tasty... More

The rooms were standard the beds were very comfortable. I can't say enough good comments about the service and staff. The food at the pub was quality at a great price and breakfast included in the cost. We will definitely stay again.

Not when I can remember how it used to be ten years ago under former management when it was crowded at lunchtime and evening and trying to get a table to eat during busy times was nigh on impossible without a reservation....
