Lovely quaint old British pub, beautifully decorated for Christmas and with a log fire burning. Very reasonable price for good quality food and drinks. Staff were very helpful even though they were very busy.

Friendly, attentive staff with good ambience. On this occasion we had fish and chips - excellent crisp batter with perfectly cooked cod accompanied by reasonable chips together making a generous portion. Very good range of sweets.

Now this is what a country pub should be like! From the warm welcoming open fire, to the cosy decor and soft lighting, this looked good from the go! The menu choice is superb, so much good local seasonal fare e.g. venison, pheasant etc and some old favourites e.g. whitebait, duck and orange pate and black pudding fritters. A great... More

What a lovely pub. Very pretty setting, friendly welcome, and brilliant varied menu, with exceptionally good food. Had battered black pudding to start - fabulous moist black pudding in a light, crispy batter, with salad and chutney - almost a meal in itself. Husband had sea bass - his favourite choice - but excellent and plentiful served on a tagliatelle... More

Our friends had Crab au Gratin, and Sea Bass and my husband Fish Curry. All were really excellent. No room for dessert but a... More

My mate 'Harry' and I were recommended this place by a friend. What a fab recommendation .... The food was great, the atmosphere was lovely and relaxed and the staff were so helpful. This place gets a 10/10 from me which is a high accolade indeed!! Such a lovely evening :-)

You know the phrase? You don't get a second chance to make a first impression? Yup, that's the one, small baldy chap behind the bar snubbed us on arrival in our attempts to gets drinks for our six guests prior to lunch.. Diverting staff away from me when trying to order drinks is nothing short if rude. Decided to eat... More
