The atmosphere was really nice and what you would expect from a well run country pub, the inside is clean and homely. We both decided to order sunday... More

Good choice of food on the menu including staples like steak pie and chips. I had ox cheek with pak choi chilli which was delicious. They also serve sandwiches, light meals and pizza. Puds were fine and service was good. All in all worth a visit if you're in the area.

Friday lunchtime treat to catch up with an old friend, we wanted somewhere quiet and cozy. Quiet it was; but staff were inattentive and got order wrong three times. That wasn't as bad as finding the bread of my ham sandwich was mouldy. Admittedly I wasn't charged for the sandwich but shall not be going back.
