The fire was blazing, the bar staff were welcoming and even when a drink got knocked over by accident, it was all cleared up without any fuss. Child and dog friendly. Would recommend a visit for food or a cheeky drink.

Stopped for lunch and had a lovely surprise with the quality of the food, the service and the surroundings. Good menu to choose from and a variety of drinks to go with it. Fish and chips, steak, ham and pea pie all worth a try.
