We had Sunday lunch a week ago. I've never had such a perfect Sunday meal. Everything was cooked to perfection and the huge thick slices of meat just melted on your mouth. Can't wait to go back.

First night of our holiday and came here on a recommendation. Dog friendly, plenty of space between tables and good pub grub. Nothing at all to dislike but nothing exceptional either. Friendly staff who created a welcoming atmosphere.

Sorely disappointed by the ‘pie’, a stew in a bowl with a thin, burned shortcrust lid. Raised this when the table was cleared (nobody bothered to check during the meal) and got a rather affronted harrumph. Well, sorry the made-to-order ‘pie’ was burned, I’ll shut...More
