Very good lunch.

A lunch for two this week was very enjoyable. Good food, nice clean and warm environment. The location is perfect for walking in this super before or after eating.

This is a fantastically run pub. Food is very good. We are here 3 times while staying at a local campsite out of 20 main meals during that time 18 were great and 2 were average. Not at all bad for somewhere as reasonable as this, with service this good. Great pub grub!

There are both awful and good reviews of this pub, but as most of the bad ones are dated 2014 we gave it a try. First impressions were not great - fish was on the specials board, but when I tried to order I was told "sorry we have no fish". Then I asked for sirloin steak - again they... More

Popped in here tonight with my wife & son, it's a lovely little place, nice atmosphere, helpful stuff & most importantly the food was very nice. Had a mixed grill & a fish and chips plus bangers & mash and garlic bread for the little one - all were lovely and for once I struggled to finish. Also serve local... More

It's not too common to find a pub where the quality of the beer and the food is equally high. At lunchtime today we found such a place. All 5 of us remarked that it was some of the best pub food we had experienced; we had the fish and chips, veggie and meat lasagne and the 3 sausage meal,... More

Having messed up my booking by a month (Trivago, grrr!) all staff were amazingly accommodating when we turned up out of the blue, organising a room with no fuss. Food that evening, and every evening, was excellent - well cooked pub grub with very reasonable portion sizes. Room was spacious and tidy, and the huge full English set us up... More

We visited this pub last Sunday whilst in the area for a Sunday dinner. Whilst I don't normally eat carveries this was lovely. The roast dinner was really nice and good value for money. There was a choice of two roast meats (you could have both if you wanted) and a lovely fresh selection of vegetablea. Replenished all the time.... More
