Some garlic bread arrived after half an hour but this was frozen in the middle so sent it back. We got a replacement a little later... More

Beautiful little pub we visited when seeing family, good service, brilliant food at a decent price. Portions of generous size and very scrummy! Car park is very small and not a lot of parking near by
