A very good meal

I recently had a meal with 12 friends so quite a big party. They catered for us very easily and we had a good banter with the excellent staff. Food was to a high standard and was nearly a five star. I would go back there for sure. The fish and chips whilst a bit pricey was beautifully cooked... read more

An excellent experience. A very tasteful decoration enhancing the old walls. A very relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. The staff couldn't be more helpful and the food tastes great, everything made on the premises with local produces. A special thanks to the waitress who waited on our table. A place not to be missed.

We loved the ambience in this inn and the food was very tasty with a good choice. The cricket team coming in for a drink after a game was good fun!

An old pub with lots of nooks and crannys and a pleasant atmosphere. We ate in the restaurant rather than the bar as we were advised it would be quieter in there. The food was very good and reasonably priced, the staff polite and attentive and we had a very pleasant evening.

Sadly, the service was way too quick and it was quite obvious that the staff wanted all of the diners out really quickly so they could close up early. This was a shame as the pub itself is nice. The food was average - a bit tasteless and unimpressive. We are not planning to go back.

A lovely bar meal-- could not fault. The new management have improved service dramatically. The 'cottage' extension is the bees knees!
