Visited while staying at a local campsite. Lovely little pub that oozes character. Food was lovely I had the traditional shropshire fidget pie and it didn't disappoint. It gets busy so book a table.

Well worth the effort to get there: great old pub, welcoming locals and atmosphere and superb home cooked food. The fidget pie is to die for. Great service.
