Have visited this pub many times but decided to write a review as its long overdue Its a traditional village pub and décor is in keeping with its age, location etc. Landlord is a very amiable chap, always friendly and smiley which helps the ambience. Have eaten here approx. 10 times now and have not had a bad meal yet.... More

Never again will we call here for a meal, terrible... More
