Walked into the village from nearby campsite, who had recommended the pub for lunch. Lovely sunny day and we we pleased to sit down (outside) with our drinks. Beer very good! Food came quickly and was well prepared, tasty and reasonably priced. Atmosphere in the bar friendly and welcoming. A place to revisit.
