“Fantastic Atmosphere & Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

A very cosy, country pub in scenic surroundings - I noticed that the pub is also dog friendly, so you can bring you dog along too - as long as they are well behaved..

I had the 6oz Rump Steak and green peppercorn sauce, with salad and fries. Whilst we were waiting we were offered fresh bread, which was warm and tasty. I was well pleased with the food, the steak was tender and cooked just how I requested and the salad, with its dressing, was fresh and tasty too.

From the moment we walked in the staff were warm and friendly and the lad serving behind the bar kept checking on us to make sure everything was fine and that we were happy! I will definitely be returning here with further guests to sample the other meals on the menu. :-)

“overpriced sandwiches”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

lovley location and nice atmosphere if a bit dated inside.

“David E”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Visited on Saturday 23rd Feb. having been on the previous Tues, when we had a very pleasant experience. Very pretty setting and warm atmosphere inside. Decided to take a weekend visitor. What a difference a few days can make. After waiting for over an hour for 3 rounds of sandwiches, we gave up and left. Money back but no apology just told we were in the system like everyone else. OK it was Saturday lunchtime but quite obviously they couldn't cope with more than a few people at any one time. Chaotic! Shall not be returning!

“Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Had Sunday lunch here with some friends ( total party size 4) on Sunday 24th Feb. We found a veryiving us some excellent service warm welcoming pub with attentive staff giving us some excellent service. Roast pork and beef were on offer as well as a number of other dishes.Portion sizes were good and the food well presented and cooked. Maybe a little expensive for a pub , around £145 for the 4 of us for 3 courses and drinks but we all enjoyed it and would visit again. The dog loved it too!!
