2 course set meal for £11.95, excellent.

Ate there in June 2015 on a busy Friday evening with my pal. We both chose from the set menu, chicken pate and then gammon. The pate was delish, served in a sizeable ramekin, and sealed with a crust of butter. Beautifully smooth and very moist. Hot crusty bread and chutney accompanied it. On... read more

First time visit on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Myself and my partner thought we would try this country pub for a spot of Sunday lunch.

Excellent food and service, very nice dining areas. A good menu choice with some classics and some more higher ranged. Wednesday is Pie Day with an interesting choice of fillings, veg and potatoes. Only disapointment was the fact there was no curry dish on the menu. Apart from this little niggle we will most definitely visit again.

Decent pub food with not too many frills,done well in a nice location. Establishment is set up for food only customers, not many places to sit for a drink only unless the weather is good & you can sit outside. Found the service a little slow, but it was quite busy.
