“My 50th Birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

We booked a table for 12 aas it was my 50th Birthday, as 12 is a large number to handle on spec.
Lovely warm welcome by the staff, lovely surroundings, nice open fire blazing on what was a wet and miserable day.
The food was lovely, and there was an excelent choice.
the very friendly staff were very helpful and efficient, ad provided a nice relaxed atmosphere.
First class.
The one down side is the parking situation, which caused some ruffled feathers with the rather unfriendly neighbours, and there was an nicdent with a stuck bus.

“warm and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Called in yesterday for a late lunch with elderly parents and labrador. Lovely atmosphere, friendly patient staff and lovely food. Service was prompt, meals were very well presented and hot, and above all everything tasted very good. Its so nice to eat somewhere so welcoming, particularly with our labrador. Its great not to have to leave her in the car. We will definitely return

“Even the dog had fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

For my wife's 40th I booked dinner bed and breakfast here as it was said to be dog friendly and she could stay the night too. We were given a very friendly welcome including our dog, in fact all the staff were first rate and the food was excellent. More so was the real ale which could be properly enjoyed knowing there was no drive home that night. With excellent local walks we are all looking forward to a return visit
