A great traditional rustic pub. The food is well cooked and tasty. Expect a reasonable mix of traditional pub grub with some more interesting specials and well kept ales. Worth hunting out as it is off the beaten track.

Winter or Summer the Le De is the perfect pub to relax in. Our large garden is child friendly and dogs are welcome provided they are on a lead. When the nights draw in the open fire and low beamed ceilings provide a warm and cosy atmosphere. The large car park is fenced off from the garden.
