Slightly on the expensive side with three bottled waters and a red wine costing nearly £10, but otherwise the food was good quality,... More

We all selected a meal from the Christmas range and as my parents are senior citizens we were pleased that they offered a deal which made their... More

Our party of 6 had lunch and dinner at this quaint pub/restaurant. Good, tasty homemade food at a reasonable price. The staff were very attentive. Would recommend the fish and chips?

5 of us to feed - 2 of us gluten and dairy free - no problem! The food is fabulous and the portions are generous. The staff are friendly and the fires were just what was needed on a foggy November evening.

Even though the popularity of this place limited the choice of available meats, we all enjoyed the quality of the food and beer, and the relaxed atmosphere to recouperate following a beautiful walk. Hope to find room for a pudding next time
