After a day of biking we decided to reward ourselves with an evening meal and a few beers. This pub is lovely and the food delicious. The young lady and young man who waited on were very attentive and service was with a smile.

This is my local. It's been a pleasure to watch the transformation brought about by the Landlord Mal and his wife Diane. They've both put their heart and soul into this place since they took it on about eight years ago and have worked tirelessly improving it ever since. Mal keeps a range of stock Bateman beers and a regularly... More

Great food as usual, you can sit in the bar, snug or the back restaurant. Good service and friendly staff. One point - the decoration could do with a freshen up.

We received a lovely initial welcome at what has now become our local pub due to our moving house. Such a pretty pub from the outside and traditionally decorated inside with a relaxed environment. Great choice of drinks available, especially lots of gin and tonics so a must visit for G&T fans! It was nice to see a pub that... More

My husband and I visited this pub with our dog for the first time today. We are new to the area so we have been trekking around trying to find pubs that allow dogs and serve lovely food. Well, we were not disappointed. There were loads of dogs in this pub, which was awesome, but it didn't stop the staff... More

From Sunday lunch [excellent value] to fish and chips the food is always excellent. A real friendly village atmosphere and Malcolm prides himself on his first class real ales.
