Visited for lunch on a Saturday with our dog & made welcome. Pleasant bar setting with good service. Not cheap but good portions and acceptably presented.

We had two meals at this Pub which were both very good. There is a large garden and a large dining room, Very easy to get to and in the garden there is a small play area for children, here is also a small CL site behind the Pub for Caravanners etc.

The restaurant coped extremely well with a party of twelve, aged from two to seventy. We all enjoyed an excellent meal, and the staff were very efficient and friendly.

Had a meal here with my family in August whilst staying at nearby country park in Ashbourne. I had the curry which was a special whilst my wife had the chilli con carne and my children had meals from the kids menu. I cannot fault any aspect of the food we had, all very nicely cooked and good portion size.... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch (with a little trepidation due to some negative comments about the staff) we were presently surprised to find the staff welcoming, friendly and helpful. The menu had the usual pub food and a good selection of beers. I had the mixed grill and my wife had what tired out to be a... More
