Sunday lunch to remember

We first visited with our puppy whilst waiting to check in to the nearby Forest Holidays site. We were made to feel very welcome and our 3.5 month old puppy was a big hit! We returned for Sunday lunch (without the dog) and can say that it was a brilliant meal. It tasted like home-cooked food, and... read more

Although it was lunchtime, as it was a celebratory lunch, we had asked when booking if we could eat from the dinner menu - it was not... More

Very good food, friendly attentive staff. Very helpful regarding young children. Nothing like a roaring log fire on a cold January day.

It has a nice cosy pub feel,... More

I've never had to worry about keeping the floor clean in any pub,... More
