This is one of our "local" pubs and the atmosphere is just lovely. The staff are always friendly and attentive. The menu looks great but I have to say, over the years (and we've been coming here a long time!), the food is at best described as adequate. It's such a shame as if they upped thier game on the culinary front, it could be a very popular place to eat! The potato wedges are always (historically!!) crunchy and not cooked properly and the fish & chips, although delicious, is always full of bones and couldn't be given to a child as would be dangerous! The portions can be a bit stingy and the food is ok but to be honest, I could do better myself and I am not a great cook!!
If it's a drink at a beautiful village pub you're after, then this is the place. If you're looking for a really good place to eat, then it's not! Well not at the moment!
