Visited for dinner on a cold November evening and received a warm welcome from the friendly landlady. Place was almost deserted as an England match was on later in the evening. Food was good - I had chicken pie which I enjoyed, and my wife had an equally enjoyable chicken dish. Hot chocolate with cream was something else. We recommend... More

Staff made us welcome, including the dog, served with a smile and were extremely helpful. All meals arrived together, red hot and cooked to perfection. We all had... More

Went here with the idea of a bar snack, the restaurant was quiet so we were offered a table, the service was first class, very friendly and the food was excellent. I had the fish pie which was superb. Will definitely be returning.

A bit sporty to get to down some narrow lanes but worth the effort. Had to wait a bit to order as they weren't doing food when we arrived however once ordered the food was out quickly enough. Food was good and was well received by the kids too. Beer garden was nice too.
