I went with a friend who relished their whitebait and rosemary fries - I had what they describe as the best ploughmans in the Country. I have not tried them al but have to say mine was truly exceptional and probably worthy of the boast.

Called in for a drink for first time following arrival of new tenants (again). Bar staff could not have been more abrupt and unhelpful. Requested bowl of water for dogs but barman couldn't be bothered. Will not be visiting again.

We only popped in for a quick drink, but the staff were excellent and the menu looks fab. We'll be back for a dinner soon! Good wine list too.

How to kill off a village pub in one week! Employ kids with little too no experience. Have music loud enough so that the guests have to raise their voices to converse. No soap in the lavatory is always good in a restaurant for a...More

New owners. Cold wet day but no fire(no logs apparently!) meant pub was cold and lacked atmosphere. Fish and chips - poor portion size, fish very small; fish cakes very solid and mostly crab(?); burger good value though. Spritzer was flat, when mentioned was topped...More
