The most delicious Sunday roast you will ever get, food is always hot and tasty with the most amazing home made stuffing and roast potatoes cooked to perfection. Highly recommend but book as it gets very busy. X

Love this place. Friendly little village pub with loads of character. Whether it's out straight from work with friends for food and a pint, a Saturday session to watch the rugby, live music on the weekends or Sunday dinner with the family this place is hard to beat. As far as Sunday dinner is concerned, Colin's mustardy ham, rare beef,... More

Great value food, Carvery was delicious, but the gravy was spicy and wasn't labeled which my girlfriend didn't like and had poured it all over food which was a shame.

The staff are always... More

This is our number one choice for Sunday dinner. The carvery is excellent, always cooked to perfection and diners are served with a side dish of freshly cooked veg. The two course dinner, including desserts is less than tenner. Local (very) beers are available and the staff are lovely.

My comments are limited to the two times I've used this local gem. On both occasions I went here it was a Thursday, I believe, and the whole pub was all mine. Service was polite and friendly from the attractive young lady who served me. The pints were superb, me being a real ale fanatic. A real pub atmosphere is... More

Me and the rest of my family have been going to the beat for years and we are still fascinated by how good the food is. I'm not a big fan of the menu but I have only ever eat on the actual menu once the rest of the time we only went on Sunday's. If you live near the... More

The only thing better than the food is the fantastic customer service. During the week and on the weekend the food is top notch and the atmosphere is great. Highly recommended.
