Our party of 6 stopped for a drink here (and a Hunter's Chicken sandwich). There is a large range of real ales and unusual lagers. The food was good. It had a good atmosphere.

Stopped here as we needed a drink & there were tables outside so we could have a relaxing drink in the sun watching the world go by. Good quality drinks of our liking.

After half day of walking we stop by to have some rest and apperatives. The problem is the beer was not cold but the people working were friendly and helpful.

At last - this pub has ordered in enough curry to meet demand - third pub before we found a reliable supply! Good to work up an appetite en route.
