We went for lunch on two consecutive occasions, both times the meals were excellent, the service was friendly , professional, and efficient. The atmosphere was excellent a lovely roaring welcoming open fire. Nothing was too much bother for the staff, the food in our opinion was restaurant quality, in a traditional village pub, can't wait to go for lunch again... More

We weren't disappointed as the food was very good and the staff friendly and helpful. Between us we opted for the fish and chips and steak. Both were cooked perfectly and the meals were of a good...

Often pop in for a quiet drink whilst visiting family. A warm and friendly village local. I am yet to try the food, but i doubt i will be disappointed.

Enjoy the company of family and friends. Watch the latest sporting event on the large screens. It more than just a pub it is a time - honoured village pub at the heart of the local community
