Having read a couple of negative reviews here I was slightly dubious about giving it a go. I needn't have been. This is a delightful country pub with candlelit tables and a very cosy ambience. Very helpful and friendly staff. The burgers were exceptionally good as were the accompanying chips, coleslaw and mixed salad. If I could find complaint it... More

The starters were excellent, large in size and good quality. The mains were not as good. The Fish and Chips came with Mushy Peas that had obviously been left... More

On entering the pub it has a nice feel and we sat in a lovely corner table overlooking the village road and green. The food was really good lots of scampi which made a change to some... More
