Pie Night

We went for the pie night and had an excellent pie and mas meal, all home made. The beers are cask and kept very well.

The food in this place is fantastic, the service is brilliant and if I was handing out awards, this place would get the top prize! I've been back a number of times since my first visit and I really can't fault the place!!!! Well Done!!!!

This being my local pub is no coincidence. This place is lovely run and offers good and affordable food. In the winter you can sit in front of the fire and in the summer outside to a lazy country road. It is worth mentioning that you will meet the locals and that you dog are welcome too.

Whilst out with my wife and 3 year old in the vicinity, my wife and I were looking for somewhere nice and about as far removed from McDonalds as we could find. We also wanted somewhere off the beaten track and with some outside area for our little man to run around. We found the staff to be very friendly... More

I took my sister and niece here for a late lunch and a birthday meal on a lovely sunny day and had a wonderful relaxing afternoon. The Inn is in a pretty country setting yet is only 10 minutes away from the main road, is light and roomy,so ideal for my niece with a baby and large pram. Despite arriving... More

No warm welcome from staff. Took 20 minutes to get drinks and meal took nearly an hour to arrive despite pub not being very busy. Our young children were getting very restless so had to ask how much longer it would take. Food very average: Mashed up dry garden peas with fish and chips, no mushy peas. Falafel burger very...
