When we came before we enjoyed it thoroughly, so we brought the rest of the family. The welcome and friendliness of the place is as well matched as the food. Good portions and lots of vegetables to go with the meats and Yorkshire Puds.

A fantastic feel and look to an English country pub. The food and staff were excellent and the attention to detail throughout the decor was to our taste. I must see and visit if you are in the area.
