“Not bad!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Came with some friends for a drink and a meal and we were not disappointed.
We thought the menu was a little strange but we all managed to find something we could select and we all made good choices.

“Been coming here for years - great pub!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

I meet up here with friends every couple of months, so I've seen some management changes over that time, some good, some not so - but recent changes have been good, with excellent food and reasonable prices. They have a good selection of beers and whiskies and an imaginative menu. Lovely garden too.

“A warm welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Visiting the area for the weekend - very pleasant pub with an excellent restaurant menu - efficient friendly staff - we were advised to book as it was saturday night and the pub and restaurant were both very busy but the staff handled everything in their stride and our order came quickly, but we were not rushed. Will certainly call again when in the area.

“Wonderful country pub with super menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Visited here with my husband, daughter and her husband and child, on a lovely warm sunny bank holiday. We chose to sit in the garden, as did nearly everyone else. The gardens are pretty and peaceful, and nicely furnished. The menu was far and away better than the normal 'pub' menus you are offered. There were the old favourites like fish and chips and sausage and mash. But also there were more interesting selections, such as a vegetarian Wellington and calves liver. The choice of childrens meals was slightly more interesting that normal also. The food was all of very good quality, and nicely presented. My husband felt the portions were a tad small, but I was more than satisfied. All in all a lovely meal in lovely surroundings. (Have also been here for an evening meal, indoors which was also fab, the pubs interior is very quaint, particularly in the older part of the pub).
