Very quiet pub, usually just the locals in but a nice little place to stop by and eat or drink, they offer locally sourced home cooked food, a lovely little garden with a couple of goats and chickens.....very friendly atmosphere and the staff are very welcoming

Gavin was a real gentleman, I had to clock in at an awkward time and he was up ready to welcome me with a smile and room key, just what I needed at the end of a long shift. Thank you Gavin, you were a life saver.
