A little stroll from our camp site we came to the local pub. Having been recommended to have a drink here by quite a few we were not disappointed. Friendly staff, good beer, a pool table, good music and nice safe environment to be with the family. Looking forward to calling back for our evening meal in the week

We have been here a few times now. Mainly for Sunday Lunch. Which is very good in comparison to some we have been to. The staff are always very friendly and the service is pretty good. The food is as Sunday Lunch should be, homely and satisfying. All in all they do a good job.

Arrived on evening on Sunday before May Bank Holiday. Yes there was a wait on food which we were warned about so didn't mind. What I liked was the extensive menu and especially the fact they did smaller portions of your menu for kids. Great idea as my 7 yr old with a good appetite doesn't always want chicken nuggets,...

The Sunday lunches at this restaurant are fabulous, good value for money and a nice choice of vegetables, the informal layout is suitable families too, but it is best to book in advance as it gets really busy.
