Worth a visit

I have been here a couple of times. The food on both occasions was excellent. The atmosphere is cost and inviting. Prices were reasonable. Portion size was very generous. Set in very nice surroundings.

Popped in for a drink and a snack yesterday and went back with our daughter today for lunch. Some excellent Thai food both days. Portion size is large so be careful not to over order. Nice pleasant service and all good value. Will be a regular lunch spot for us.

Really good food especially the Pork belly with cracking and mash. So good to find a pub that does good food and allows the dog in the bar area wherre you are going to sit. Best to book and advise you have a dog so you get in the right area

Went for dinner, menu seemed good, but quite varied although the food we had was good. However on a weeknight, the atmosphere was just a pub rather than anything more.

Went to this Pub on 1 May to try their menu with a view to taking four friends with us the following week. Very nice place and staff, we ordered fish and chips and a cod loin and mash potato, this took 40 minutes to arrive. Everything was well presented and looked good. We were disappointed as the mash potato... More

Delightful country Pub with excellent food and well kept ales. Went with my son and wife on a Friday night and could not fault the place. Lovely interior, the food was both excellent in quality and quantity. Staff polite and attentive without being overly intrusive. First time visiting this Pub and most certainly shall not be the last

Had booked a Sunday lunch with the family. Friendly service and food came within about 20 mins. Although it did take 5mins between the first person getting served and the last (there were 7 of us) pricing a bit bizarre with liver and ribeye steak being the same price -£16.95. That said the food was very good with the only... More
