Been a few times recently and always enjoyable, tried something different each visit and consistently good, tasty, well prepared and presented. Pleasant surroundings, generally quiet but that suits us. Sure to change over time, but at present a hidden gem waiting to be discovered.

This used to be a really nice pub to get a typical pub lunch at a reasonable price and we used it many times over several years. Used to be busy most lunch times. Have just visited again and found it changed (new owners?). Prices...More
