The food is reasonably priced but certainly unspectacular. Perfectly adequate for a lunchtime stop mid-walk.

One to visit for a drink & excellent real ales. We wouldn't return for food though - really poor. Staff were friendly & we enjoyed the beer. Food lets this place down though & they could do much better in my view.

Hearty and homely cooking at a good price for the portion size. Very friendly staff and excellent customer service. The steak and ale pie is to die for! Definitely, a place to visit, again and again!

Hubby and I stayed here for three nights and enjoyed every meal. Servings were huge our favourite was the meat lasanga which we had for two nights. The choc pudding was great, and staff always checked if we needed anything else within a few mins of serving us our food. The Cumberland sausages served with breakfast were very good.

The worst food we've ever had. Mash was grey dry and lumpy. Cumberland sausage was pale and waterlogged. Wonder if it had been cooked in water bath in the oven. Steak n ale pie had raw pastry on the bottom and pastry was thick n soggy. 'Home cooked chips' were obviously frozen skinny fries and were soggy. Our friends had... More

Lovely location for this old inn. Pool of water in front of bar that you had to stand in to order - weird. There is a restaurant area which is completely soulless despite the nice view. Menu is meat based and says everything is home cooked - can you call oven chips home cooked? The meat was good quality but... More

We stayed nearby and popped in here for a light lunch after a walk. The beer was good and there were games for the children in a tidy outdoor area. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food was good, although we only ordered baguettes and chips so can't comment on the full menu.
