Visited on a bank holiday Monday. They were serving roasts but we opted for salmon, steak and ale pie, and the lamb henry. Table service was just right, they didn't pester but we didn't have to wait to order either. The food was incredible, as were the portions. I've never eaten so much lamb in one sitting!

Excellent food and service. The roasts are really good and vegetables plentiful and never over cooked. Starters and puddings if you can manage them are yummy. Still don't know how they do it at the price but glad they do. Highly recommended.

Good beer, good pub food (the haddock and chips was superb), lovely friendly staff and a great landlord who made us feel really welcome. What more could you want from a village pub.

Busy pub & restaurant....we were shown to a table quickly and served politely. Our fish pie and venison steak arrived in good time & were really nice. Would recommend this inn.
