Called in, without prior reservation, for an evening meal around 8pm. Pleasant welcome from bar staff. Were able to choose any table we wanted - the place was empty apart from two gentlemen at the bar. Large selection of delicious sounding food - included the Christmas burger! Very pleased with our choice of food. Excellent evening thanks to great staff,... More

Start at the beginning. A pleasant welcome into this quaint little country pub. Nice friendly people. As locals came and went they were all very pleasant and wished us a happy Christmas. Bread rolls were brought to our table firstly, with a pot of margarine, sorry but for £50 per head I certainly expected butter !! Starter - i tasted... More

Called in for lunch and was surprised the place was empty. A very pleasant young lady took our order for drinks and fish pie from the specials board. Despite the bar being empty it took some ten minutes for our drinks to arrive however, the wine was good and at the right temperature. The fish pie was very well stocked... More

What an amazing wee place this is. I popped in last weekend without a reservation, after the kitchen had closed but they still managed to knock up some bar snacks. I did go back for dinner the following night and it was lovely. This is everything that a good English pub should be and it's even thatched! Great staff, great... More

We popped in as we were passing by, late on a saturday night. The log fire had been burning and it lovely and warm. The hot chocolate was great and the owners were really lovely. The barman had said that hot chocolate on a saturday night was an odd request, however, the went out of their way to meet our... More

I have been to the shoulder of mutton once before for a private party, the food then was fantastic as was the service. Today the service was very slow and the food was average, the owner is lovely, although the pub wasn't overly busy, he was doing everything himself and the service was compromised we felt. Perhaps this was a... More

Enjoyed our food and the staff were friendly. Just wouldn't rush back due to a slight lack of atmosphere and wrapping paper walls. Needs some tweaking.

Just like the good old days. Cosy, friendly staff, charismatic regulars, well-kept ale, solid food - and even got a lift back to our hotel at the end of the night. What more could you ask for? A much better (and cheaper) option than the soulless bar in the hotel down the road.
