Service was very good, staff were friendly. Food was delicious, well presented, hot and as described in the menu. Slightly pricey but not unexpected for a decent meal at a village pub. Good sized car park, lovely location. Would return.

First, I chose to come here because of the reviews and comments on trip advisor, so, if the people saying this place serves good food are not shills for the pub and genuinely thought they got good food I need to stop believing trip advisor....More
