“Great pub and lovely food highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

The food is lovely and the portions are a very good size. You are made to feel welcome and the staff are brilliant, you get looked after. I would definitely recommend this pub and hope others can enjoy the experience as my wife and I have.

“Friendly, and welcoming traditional pub, with great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Lovely little pub in the country, overlooking the cricket field. Food is very good, and portions are large. Sunday lunch is particularly good and excellent value. Staff are friendly and helpful too, we will definitely be back.

“Excellent place”

Also visited here when staying at New Place. Food was superb - I too had the lamb shanks; my wife the vegetable lasagne which was great. Huge portions, friendly staff and great atmosphere. Definitely recommend.
