My wife and I plus my brother in law and sister in law went for an evening meal. We received a friendly welcome. All the courses were first class, the accompanying potatoes chips and vegetables were more than sufficient. We all enjoyed the evening and said we would return again.

Warm welcome, excellent food, relaxed atmosphere. The location has a lovely country feel and is easy to access by road or as a stop off on a walk.

Went for Sunday lunch. I would advise booking as it was very busy. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Lovely staff and a great atmosphere. We will certainly return. The garden looked very inviting too with lovely rural scenery.

Visiting the area, we just wanted a nice pub meal. Found this establishment on Trip Advisor and paid a visit. Great, friendly staff and lovely restaurant area. The tomato soup was so tasty and the steaks, vegetables and potatoes were cooked to perfection. Enjoyed the whole night. Young waitress was brilliant. Recommended!

We visited with friends and it was so nice we went back a couple of days later with family. Food was lovely. Friendly staff. Service a tad slow the second time but it was very busy. Would recommend you book as we only just got a seat. Popular place. Everyone loved the food. The outdoor area is very nice. Great... More

Went last Saturday night - booking essential - with friends The food was excellent and there was good size portions. Well cooked and fresh Recommend the lamb and the chicken Only downside is that the choice is a little limited but we can live with that

Visited in the evening recently with friends and family - very nice dining room although aircon seemed inconsistent. Service friendly if a little inexperienced. Menu quite limited with a surprising dominance of fish dishes this far from the coast. Should have opted for a daytime visit and the bar menu. However, the food we ate was delicious.

We decided to go out for Sunday Lunch late notice and rang up and told we could sit in the bar. The restaurant was full which shows the food must be good. My mum had a Roast Lamb dinner, and I opted for the Mushroom and red onion pudding with vegetables. The main courses were a good size and they... More

Treat for my 50th - and I wasn't disappointed. The food was excellent, as was the service. Landlord cheeky but I have known him for thirty five years! Would recommend this place to anyone who would like proper food cooked exceptionally, in a great location. The garden will be stunning in the summer.
