Very cosy and welcoming!

This was our local pub for a recent glamping holiday. Very welcoming and cosy inside, with friendly staff. The fact they had Curious Brew on tap alone has made this a winner. Didn't get a chance to eat but food looked good. Would definitely return.

Superb meal ( we had seared pigeon breast and venison) at very realistic prices and cooked to perfection. Lovely friendly atmosphere and excellent service. A real treat - thoroughly recommended but you need to book at busy times.!

We called in one Sunday for a drink, there was no one at the bar serving and another couple were waiting. We waited a while and still nobody could be bothered to serve us so we left.

This place is always packed, even during a dreary Winters day, during the week. The food is always of a very high quality, and the service excellent. Book well in advance or you'll be disappointed!

I have visited this old pub many times and the food is always fresh and delicious. The menu has a decent selection of dishes everything from fish and chips to prawn curries ( a special that day).
