A worthy pub, easy to park, and easy to drink not much more to say, food was ok, beer was ok. Its a Green King bitter and San Mig on tap. Nice enough, would go again

We have numerous times this year excellent choices each week on their early bird menu. Food always excellent as is the service. Great vegetarian selections which makes a change to most other restaurants. I would certainly recommend a visit great atmosphere and friendly staff well done.

If it wasn't for the A1 being closed we would not have been here today. Friendly welcome. Food came out quickly and was piping hot. Perfect crackling with the pork, beef perfectly pink. Tempted to have a dessert but didn't want to overdo it. Spotted a campsite down the road o may come back for the night to sample more!

Lovely setting , very welcoming staff who ensure you are looked after. Generous portions without going over the top. Great variety of choices on the menus and not one of the 9 of us were disappointed. Book ahead for your meal to ensure that you get in, as it fills up quickly.

Had a nice meal here whilst staying in the village. Good food and really nice service. As it was cold and dark outside it was great to have the fire going, which we sat next to all evening!
