This is a typical country pub with a very good restaurant. They serve a mean fillet steak, one of the best I've had. Also very good fajitas and fish and chips. Excellent all round.

Traditional old style pub. Lovely old guy serving the tables. How it should be... Well worth a visit, good prices, good ales, locals seemed OK. Much better than some of the more expensive, busy pubs in the area. Suggest you book before as its not overly large. Good garden in the summer.
