Went for lunch with a group including young children and welcome from landlady was sincere. Landlord then came out to garden where we were sitting for a chat. Food was lovely and ale very good. Definitely will be back.

My friend and I arrived for the advertised light lunch at 1.45pm on Saturday (1st March), a warm sunny day, but with only two other eating customer groups present, a little worrying in itself. We waited one hour for our lunches to arrive ! We both had baguettes although the tuna I wanted was unavailable. No apologies for the delay... More

The landlady apologised for only doing light lunches but that was just what we wanted. We had large BLT baguettes which were served with lots of salad and were delicious. We washed... More
