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.

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.
