Definitely a Hit! We had a lovely meal here and the setting is everything you'd want from a country pub. Most importantly the service was great, it's always nice to have friendly staff who take time to make your visit enjoyable. We'll be back :)

After ringing up and booking a table for Sunday lunch for 7 people, very friendly and welcoming on the phone, which in my opinion is always a good start, AND welcoming the dog as well, we had a variety of food from the menu, and NOTHING disappointed. Half portions were no problem. Roast dishes were delicious! The staff were very... More

I went here today for a spot of lunch and it didn't disappoint. I had the Liver and bacon and my wife had a Tuna Sandwich. Great portions and Great quality food . Open fires and country pub feel would recommend for a nice drink or food
