My wife an I just did not feel like cooking and although it was cold and raining we decided to try a country pub menu and found a little gem.

Visited for lunch with my mum and wife. Mum and I had the fish and chips, and the wife had mackerel pate. All three were good - in particular the fish was a very large portion, lovely and fresh. Beer was good too. Service was excellent and they let our well-behaved dog sit under the table. Thirty quid for the... More

My wife and I frequently dine here on a Saturday afternoon. The lunch time 2 course menu is fantastic value for money. The staff are always welcoming and friendly and the food is second to none. I am vegetarian, but that is never a problem as I am always presented with at least 4-5 choices. Cannot fault this place, we... More

Well.............yes, the bar serves a variety of real ales that change frequently, are all kept in pristine condition and served by guys (and gals) at the top of their game. The only slight downside is that... More

This pub is a great favourite with my workplace for lunch as it's 10 minutes down the road. Food is always awesome, and we've been there A LOT! On occasion there have been 30 of us and the food is still superb. Also, if we ring through in the morning it's ready for us when we arrive. The lady staff... More
