This pub has changed so much since the new owners took over - I hardly recognised the place. No longer dark and dingy it has a warm, welcoming interior (although the paintings could be improved!), the staff were friendly and the service was very good. We called in for a light lunch after a long walk - the pinot grigio I had was excellent as was the local beer my husband had. We both ordered the pork bap with chips which was absolutely delicious and good value. The chips were excellent and the pork just fell apart. Perfect.
The menu had an excellent choice - I had great difficulty choosing what to have as it all sounded so nice - I believe it changes every week too. I will definitely return for dinner at the earliest opportunity but for me, it will be a special occasion pub as the prices are slightly on the high side but then so many are these days!
My only comment would be that although the interior is very nice it did feel more like a small hotel than a relaxed pub - slightly more formal (waitresses in a uniform for example) - but maybe that was because we went at lunch time and there were a few businessmen in there - it wasn't a problem just an observation. My dog appreciated the dog biscuits that are on sale at the bar - a nice touch!
Definitely worth a visit.
