We just happened to be in the area and thought we would have Sunday lunch here and we were not disapponted. The meat was tender and plenty of it with ample vegetables served searately with additional gravy, Everything a good Sunday lunch should have and excellent value for money.

The food was very good with very friendly service. The fish and chips was fresh and lightly battered and the Lamb was amazing.

Used to be a great village pub, good selections of Ale's and Cider, not anymore, one guest ale, no local Ale's, just the standard strongbow, Woosh and the usual lagers. Staff really friendly, facilities clean.
