Nice village pub

Nice cosy pub, good pints. A beer garden out the back would be nice on a sunny day. Will be back again sometime

Can be expensive but worth it! Very tasty! Try to leave room for dessert too as its always so well presented and yummy too! The place has a lovely cosy atmosphere. Nice guinness and warm fire.

I ordered the fish of the day which was ocean trout which was just like salmon. A smallish piece but was cooked well and covered in lots of béarnaise sauce which spoiled it a bit. My husband has the steak burger which he was very happy with.

We shared an open prawn sandwich and an open crab meat sandwich and neither of us could decide which we preferred, they were both so good! We also had crab claws which were great but could have done with some more garlic (this is just personal taste though!)

Visited for dinner with family for the first time in years. It was Race week and surprisingly the place was not that busy but the food is as good as we remembered when we lived in the area 20 years ago. Service was good as was the menu even though it was shortened for the week that was in it... More

We visited here in August with our 4 children below age of 6. Staff couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. Food on both occasions was excellent and the Guinness one of the best in the country. So nice that we returned 2 days later with three others and the food and service was just as good. Highly recommended
