We have eaten there often - it is so nice to see newspapers spread out on the coffee table to read if you want. The food is well-seasoned and fresh. The staff are helpful and the garden is pretty. It is a typical country pub - don't be lookinmg for something really done up. It is a lovely place. The... More

Lovely location and pleasant garden. Inside a bit dated and' facilities' need updating. Some of the bar staff made a big distinction of welcome to those they know and those they don't. Menu looked great, but food did not live up to expectation. Portions on the small side. Good just not great.

Had this last night, lamb chump, absolutely fab. Just the right balance of flavours. Followed by a superb dessert, panna cotta with peaches in spice rum. Well done chef. The staff were friendly and attentive without going over the top. Not a large pub felt quite intimate. Has a choice of bar and restaurant. Built in the 1580s with beams.... More

Characterful village pub with 2 bar areas and a separate restaurant (you can eat in either). Dogs are welcome in the bar areas. Friendly service, well kept real ales served direct from the cask and tasty, good quality food. What could be better?

For a wet Tuesday night I was surprised to turn up to find the car park almost full and the bar buzzing! The restaurant was busy, the staff very friendly ... I had a burger which was delicious, pink in the middle which is a rare find these days!very tasty chips! perhaps, the side salad, a little too big but... More
