A very welcoming family restaurant with delightful food choice including smaller portions which were very adequate and delicious. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were friendly, courteous and very efficient.

Nice rural pub with friendly and helpful staff. Chalk board of daily specials looked inviting with three of my favourite dishes listed. The leek and potato soup was very bland. I rarely need to add salt to restaurant dishes but this soup needed it badly. The fish pie looked good but contained very little fish and had little flavour. The... More

I have been to the restaurant several times over the years and have always found the same high standard of food and service. A very pleasant and comfortable place to visit.

Spacious and welcoming, the inside of this pub is attractive and comfortable. Nice to see the original windows in place, though a coat of paint would not go amiss on the outside, to safeguard them for the future. Meal very tasty and with dessert was also filling. Good, tasty no-frills cooking - a refreshing and welcome approach. Entertaining to see... More

We got a bit lost and was on a tight schedule and the food came out like lightning. It was enjoyed by both of us, nicely presented. We stayed for pud as... More
