Not been here for a while, last visit was one of the worst dining experiences we've had. Service was appalling! Tonight was fantastic, great food, great friendly service and will definitely be back soon. Under new management and well recommended!.

Good selection of beers including bradfield blonde! good no nonsense food served here I've had the gammon steak black pudding new laid egg including fried / grilled pineapple and nicely done skinny fries! The wife had 1/2 lobster etc! I would like to forecast that this will be the best pub for miles to eat and drink.

It wasn't even busy .we should have known after last Saturday when we asked if we could have new... More
