Dropped in after seeing the sign on the main road, we weren't disappointed.The beer was well kept and the glass of Merlot with the meal was lovely.We went for the very reasonably priced roast beef Sunday lunch which came on plates brimming with meat and beautifully cooked vegetables (beans,cabbage,carrots,parsnips and roast spuds The beef was very tender and the homemade...

When we arrived we were warmly greeted and the log fire was welcome as it was a chilly evening. There was a good range of choices on the menu at reasonable prices. Service was prompt. The food was served hot and freshly cooked. We especially liked the fact that the vegetables were fresh and not coated in butter / salt... More

After a long walk stopped here for dinner. Had ploughman's (beautiful cheeses) fishcakes (husband said best he has ever had) and sausage & mash. All very good quality & freshly made. Little bit pricey for food we had would be only criticism, but quality was superb so happy to pay that bit more. Would return.

My wife and I have had lunch here a few times both on a Sunday and during the week. The food served is quite delicious and is clearly freshly prepared as if home cooked. The roast potatoes are real roasties, no quick fried rubbish! It is truly a very friendly place, also welcoming dogs inside which is a real bonus... More

Delighted to find this pub has reopened following a fire. I had heard it was back uyp and running so went there with a small walking group yesterday for lunch. Delighted to see Isobal and her husband back in control and producing the goods once more. There is a small menu but don't let that fool you as portion sizes... More

We had been to this pub a few years ago and it was busy and good. This visit it was nearly empty and awful. The barman was nice enough but knew less than nothing about his wine. The Sunday roast was awful and probably microwaved and the Yorkshire pudding was as flat as a pancake. The service was very slow.... More
