Seems to be doing it right!

I've been in a couple of times recently, first for a meal - and it was great, all freshly home cooked , and wasn't disappointed in the portion sizes. The second time was to watch a band last night, a proper 4 piece act, doing punk / ska - and the atmosphere was great. Plenty of guest ales... read more

Called here for lunch on spec. The bar had a few people in all seemed to be local but it was deathly quiet. You could have heard a pin drop and everyone looked round as we walked in. It made us quiet and we felt we had to whisper and we all felt a little uncomfortable. It was a nice... More

We got married on 16th May and held our wedding dinner and evening reception in the restaurant annex of this Grade 11 listed pub. What a fab party it was! Mick the landlord was amazing. The level of service to please and the quality (and quantity) of food was excellent. The hospitality was superb. Two weeks later and we are... More

Decided to pop back as not been for a couple of months. as usual all is good. Welcomed as though we were old friends. You have the option to eat in the Bar area or in its restaurant. As it was Sunday a good selection of traditional roasts were on the menu. But they do offer other options to suit... More

Visited here over Easter and had a lovely meal. The starters were delicious, the mains sounded average on the menu, but when they came out they were fantastic. They could have charged a lot more considering the quality and the size of the portions. The staff were very attentive and accomodating, the ales were good too. Will come here again... More

Good beer. Nice food. Warm and cheery landlord. Two nice fires in the winter. Beams everywhere. Dining room gets lots of private bookings - great for a small wedding or special celebration. Recommended.
