I visited this little pub for the first time the other night, and the first thing I loved was how unique and cosy this place is.

A great experience. This was a real find and, being new to the area, we went on a recommendation from our B&B. We turned up as a group of 4 without a booking and they shifted around one of their regulars to fit us in. Well, the food was very tasty indeed, served promptly and the service itself could not...

Delicious roast dinner - although I would have liked a bit more gravy and we only had one roast potato! Really nice pub with a great atmosphere.

Food is always lovely, nice selection of beers and a brilliant atmosphere! Not great for tall people in there, can't be helped though. Staff are always friendly and very accommodating.

Excellent food, but very busy - even on a Thursday night. Make sure you book a table. The sausage & mash were very good.
