We had a late Sunday roast here, and loved it. Sirloin beef and Moroccan lamb, both great. Staff were very friendly and accommodating of our 2 year old. Thoroughly recommend a visit here.

We loved the ambience in this inn and the food was very tasty with a good choice. The cricket team coming in for a drink after a game was good fun!
