We were staying down the road for the weekend and booked the accommodation as it said there was a pub close by, so didn't really know what to expect. We visited the pub both nights of our stay because everything about it was so lovely. We received a very warm and friendly welcome from the landlady and the locals on... More

My wife treated me to a birthday meal as she had been previously and really enjoyed it. On arrival we wee invited to take a seat in the bar while our table was prepared giving us a chance to look at the menu. The menu was good and had a great selection of seasonal produce. Service was what I would... More

Staying in the area with friends we stumbled upon this little pub for dinner on a Friday night. After an initial fairly abrupt 'welcome' from the landlady; the rest if the evening was wonderful! Service was attentive, menu enticing and varied and most importantly delish!!!!! The atmosphere was cosy but not cramped. Would definitely recommend a visit if you are... More

I took my girlfriend here for a treat and we were not disappointed. The food was lovely and also plentiful which cant always be said when fine dining. The service was welcoming and friendly and was all topped off with a pint of 'Sunshine'. Will definately return.

The waitresses were lovely, really helpful. The menu was extensive, something for everyone. The food delicious. The landlady however was quite cold and unfriendly. It felt like she really didn't want to be there. Such a shame as it's a gem of a place.

Great to see a business with a personal touch. Not sure about previous reports of not meeting individual needs and arriving late for their booking but in terms of the trip advisor judging criteria this establishment is excellent and well worth a visit. We need to page places like this and be realistic

Can't believe what I have read on here. Booked a table for 6, on Friday 28th, received a warm welcome. Orded drinks at the bar while we waited for 2 to arrive. We sat down and waited for the rest of our party to arrive. When they arrive they gave us time to look at the menu board before asking... More
