Good selection of wines, to accompany any meal. My boys are typical boys, and it's hard to keep them still or quiet, but I never felt it an issue here, they... More

My husband even commented how tender the... More

Two of us dropped in by chance on the way through the village. A fairly simple menu from which we chose different main courses. We were both pleasantly surprised by a tasty dish, nicely presented by a friendly landlady. Well worth a visit.
