Lovely Country Pub

We had an evening meal of home made and home cooked food. Very good and reasonably priced. I had booked in advance and we were made very welcome. Good choice of food and drinks on menu, I would throroughly recommend this pub for anyone walking in the area, either at lunchtime or evening.

Have eaten there a few times, very quirky, lovely on a warm day to sit outside or by the fire when it is cold. Food never lets them down.

Visited this pub yesterday, it is a lovely little country pub very traditional with a beautiful open fire place and original beams. It is very on the cosy side, we was on the table in front of the bar as that was the only free table which was ok but yo do end up with people stood next to you... More

We booked a table for 7 for Sunday Lunch during a weekend away. A lovely walk down to the pub and we were greeted with smiles from both staff and locals having their Sunday afternoon drinks. The menu had a good choice and there was also a specials board that provided more than enough to choose from. Portion sizes were... More

Very good mushroom starters, fish pie and gammon steak followed by diabetic ice cream. Big portions, well cooked, tasty and enjoyable with pleasant service and reasonable prices in an atmospheric country pub. Highly recommended.

We had booked a table for four and were the first diners to arrive on a Friday evening. Nice cheery open fire on entering with two or three individuals having a quiet drink. Young lady behind the bar took our drinks orders which were very slow in being prepared - one pint of Guinness in particular must have taken close... More

Good place in town for the thirsty walker - friendly atmosphere and good choice of bitter and lager, there is a good walk to be had doing the circuit of pubs in the town.
