This is an excellent place to enjoy a weekend away. It has an interesting and extensive menu, and friendly and attentive staff managed by the Chef and his capable wife who own the pub. Have stayed twice now and will most certainly be returning.

Two of the party had light meals both the smoked quail eggs and the seafood salad were pronounced excellent. John and I had a more substantial ham, eggs and chips.... More

Have recently been to the Cottage for evening meal, lunch & Sunday roast, all excellent. Food is always cooked / prepared to perfection & served piping hot. Super friendly staff, can't do enough to help. Delightful Cottage garden in a peaceful & relaxing setting. Advisable to pre book a table.
