Wide choice, great value, excellent food

This was our second visit and we were all delighted that it was just as good second time around. The service was great, good local beers and a lovely, varied menu. You need to book as it is very popular.

Had dinner there last night with 8 friends. Wonderful food, service excellent, great atmosphere, a little hard to find, but well worth the effort. Could not believe that three delicious courses with wine came to less than £30 including service charge we chose to add. Well done Tim! I've not had better food in a long time, even from far...

Went for meal with girlfriend here after discovering it on trip advisor, what a place! Not easy to find as no mobile signal but that is part of the appeal here. Building has lots of character so if your looking for a super modern gastro pub this isn't for you. Staff were welcoming and attentive, backed up by amazing food,... More

We cycled out here one evening and then had a meal. You do need to book as the food is excellent and it gets busy. Nice selection - some expected dishes and some a fantastic surprise. Great service - lovely setting.

This place looks like it should be nestled in the Canadian hill tops. It's a lovely place. The staff are friendly, chatty, even have a naughty chat with you, just to make you feel more at home. The plates were very hot and when the staff brought the food out, they didn't reach across you to give your neighbour the... More

I had to get a local to guide me in the myriad of single lane country lanes with lots of hidden junctions to get to this pub. The recommended bangers and mash was great, the sausages were full of flavour. Was having lunch and the place was almost full. So quite a few do know how good this pub is.

What a great pub. In the middle of lovely countryside and along narrow winding lanes. The food menu is truly tantalising and it's really difficult choosing. The prices are also very reasonable with starters between £3.95 and £6.50, mains from £9.50 to £12.95 and puds all at £4.50. There were four of us and for 6 drinks, a three course... More
