excellent pub and staff good choice of ales and wines, food is terrific and prompt even though the restaurant was full, good choice of meals and specials, parking is a problem with only a small car park at the rear parking on the road in front of the pub is possible but very narrow in places.

Good choice of hand pumps weekly. Great traditional pub with great staff. Food is good and consistent although a little overpriced for what it is

Booked for a pre rugby lunch and food and service was excellent as always. The food order was taken promptly with our drinks brought to the table. Our food was piping hot and waiting staff very polite and attentive. Can't go wrong with this place.

We did a nine miler and ended up at the Inn together with my daughter's dog who was on his hols., with me for the week....!! Excellent venue,... More

Babs the owner, always has a welcome for you and so have her staff. They are all very attentive and know how to serve their customers. In addition the food is of an excellent quality and good value for money. I love their Hake in a caper butter sauce...it's my favourite! Book early as it gets really full.
