We used to go often, especially for Sunday lunch. Last year things changed and we had a couple of poor meals, stopped going. Our daughter told us there was a new chef and we gave it another go. Much better. We had the tapas type food from the blackboard and it was very nice.

You can eat in the bar also, but this, too, gets very busy. Great beers and ciders. The wine is pricey-ish for a pub.All the food we had over three days was... More

Seem's they have a new chef! we had lunch there and the food had improved a lot since our last visit so its on the list again. It's always good to support local places but they have to keep an eye on quality. The management here obviously have and well done for that.

Amazing pub to eat at. Fresh baked bread and even hand churned butter supplied free. I had Smoked Mackerel starter followed by Pulled Pork and then Sticky Toffee Pudding with Clotted cream. The food was great the Ale was lovely and service with a smile. All for 20 quid. After coming all the way from New Zealand this was a... More

Went there for light lunch, great food and friendly service, well behaved dogs also allowed to visit! Interesting and imaginative menu which was refreshing and looks like there is a lot going on in the evenings. Highly recommended!
