Popped in here after a nice walk. Dogs were very welcome. Friendly atmosphere, very relaxed. Had a really lovelly (and I mean lovelly) burger followed by a really nice crumble. Price was very reasonable. Will definitely visit next time in the vicinity.

We had a great anniversary meal here a couple of months ago and decided to try it out again, with friends - we have found a number of local eateries very variable but this is a well-run "tight-ship"! The service was again excellent - well done, Lauren, Ferne and Ashley whose friendly attention to detail was impressive. The food was... More

I love this place in the evening for a meal but haven't tried lunch in a long time. I was impressed with the menu and our sandwiches were lovely. I recommend the peppers and mozzarella on ciabatta. The chunky chips were lovely and the price was good too. A quirky pub with good food and pleasant staff. You can't beat... More

Wait staff was very nice. Antipasto starter tasty. Mains so disappointing. Would probably have been better to order the burger or fish and chips given it is a pub after all. The duck breast was tough, chewy, and dry. Very overcooked and needed more sauce. Though the sauce was very salty. The potato was old and reheated. You could taste... More

visited with a few friends the pub was welcoming, the beer choice plentiful and the food portions something else. And if that wasn't enough the prices were very reasonable. We will be back.

It may seem odd to describe a humble burger as ‘delicious’ but they keep it simple, (with a drop of Lea and Perrins I think) do it well and it’s a little masterpiece that’s typical of a confident kitchen that only elaborates if it improves the dish. It is a fine rustic pub with an even better dining space and... More

Had a lovely meal the other evening at this Pub/ restaurant. The menu had various options of main meal that I was keen to try. However, at the last minute I went with the 'bubble and squeak', which I thoroughly enjoyed. This portion size was ample and came with two eggs poached well on the top.

Our daughter held her wedding reception here and I could not fault it. From the initial enquiry to the day itself Nikki and Christian and all the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The roast beef was to die for. Our evening do was in the marquee which was fantastic-even the bar staff were dancing between serving! And the pork... More

This restaurant and pub is a place we frequent fairly often for both food and drinks.The staff are young,friendly and efficient.It is set in an old farm building,very rustique and characterful. The food is simple enough but cooked with passion and flair (you can tell that the chef has tested what he serves as it is always flaversome),the service and... More
