An absolutely fabulous meal was had by all 6 of us! Faultless, flavourful and well served and presented. The rib eye steak was succulent, tender and had a perfect bbq'd tinge to it with amazing aftertaste! We would all definitely return to eat again!

This 16th Century property is filled with wonderful features which make it a joy to have a pint or two of one of our real ales. We have a vast range of good quality wines and spirits and if fancy the staff can knock up great cocktails. We are open for lunch or dinner (closed Mondays). Our menu is modern and exciting whilst still has some of the old favorite & comfy food You feel a warmth which seems to hug you and the two open fires makes the day or evening a relaxing experience.
