Booked to stay one night as we were visiting the local area. Gorgeous old pub, great food, unfortunately our visit was spoiled by a rude woman behind the bar with an attitude problem. My partner took his pint of beer back sit tasted "chemically" he was told there was nothing wrong with it - it was his tastebuds!!! After some... More

This is a lovely pub situation wise and perfect if you have been out walking. There are a few local ales on and my friend really enjoyed his food, but I wasn't quite so enthusiastic. The mushroom soup was nice, the bread a bit dry and margarine, mmm, please give me a choice of butter! The menu was limited and... More

The food was excellent quality as was service and interior. The atmosphere was great. It was however over priced especially as the portions are not so large. Watch out for the squid, or lack of I should I say! Also had breakfast here the morning following a pleasant stay. Breakfast was great and would recommend.

Delightful , welcoming pub with comfortable seating and very pleasant dining areas. The food was very good. Home made soup and adequate plough mans. Bread could have been more interesting . Otherwise would highly recommend.

Looking for a pub for a pub lunch one afternoon and stumbled across this place. Staff very helpful and accommodating, we were immediately shown to a table for 4 and the waitress gave us all menus. Upon looking at the menu it was clear that this pub is attempting to be "a bit more up market" with their polenta chips... More

We had a great holiday tea here - food was great, although not a great deal of choice. Very clean and lovely décor.

Very limited menu, unaccommodating staff and unfriendly atmosphere. Better pubs in the village centre. Such a shame.

Called in with my party of 11 local walkers at 12:15 pm to have coffee in the garden on a sunny August day. Asked if someone from the bar could come out to take our order (to save all the walkers trooping into the bar). Was to that "we do not do table service in the garden", so ordered two... More

No food served ( the chefs were being given time off after working hard over Bestival weekend) despite the fact that there was no notification of this on any of the signage. Extremely overpriced drinks: £7.50 for half an orange juice, a large coke and a packet of crisps! Lovely pub with nice grounds but not worth the visit today.
