Called to book at table for 10th June, but the (very nice) landlady said that they were closed temporarily. Hope they reopen soon - it's a lovely, friendly village pub with great Sunday roasts.

Consistently great food here. Their shortcrust pies are absolutely amazing. Always packed so if you want to go especially on a weekend, make sure you book.
