Ate here with a group of friends whilst on a week's walking holiday. Nothing fancy just simple honest pub grub. Decent sized portions, in fact some of the group could not finish. A good local that serves adequate food.

Lovely, cosy traditional pub in a quiet little village. Good ales, a proper old fashioned pub. Large out door seating area looked fun for the summer.
