What a lovely quaint country pub, warm friendly staff with a smile! All beams and country benches to sit on. We got here early and glad we did as it gets very busy......not noisy, just busy and popular. We had a lovely meal here, super fast service and plenty of it. Set back from main road. Definately worth a visit.

Love this pub. It is overflowing with warmth and character, the atmosphere is very welcoming and charming throughout. Open fires, dog friendly and full of homely ambience - this pub is definitely a winner for us. Staff are friendly and very accommodating. Can't fault this place on anything. Well done guys

Good beer and a good atmosphere. Food was good and plenty of it. Ploughmans could have fed two. Bank holiday so the pub was packed but really worth a visit. We went on a recommendation.

My wife had the Ploughmans and I had the beef curry meal. Both more than enough and exceptionally good value for the money.
