We went with friends for midweek lunch and a pint (or two). We have had some bad experiences in the area and we all were pleasantly surprised... More

Lovely atmosphere. Loved Tom our waiter! And the Aussie waitress, didn't catch her name. The food arrived promptly and very well presented. We shared a starter of crisp pork and black pudding. Two of us had venison and two had rib of beef.. Very enjoyable.

Four of us had a superb 'Sunday Lunch' meal today - what a great choice of food - not only on the Sunday Lunch menu but also the Specials board and the main menu. It really was refreshing to have an interesting menu. A lot of the food is locally sourced which I support. It is so nice to be... More
