6 adults, mid week, busy place for mid week. Delightful young gentleman looked after us, only 2 on the bar so were a bit over stretched by the number of tables they were serving. We shared lovely fresh breads and oils to start which came with pickled veg, very nice. All ordered different main courses but arrived all together. The... More

We happened upon this pub while we were in the area. Lovely feel to the interior, really good selection of beers on tap and in bottles. We had Sunday lunch in a relaxed atmosphere. The 3 courses were extremely good - excellent for the price (they could easily charge more!). We'd come again and would recommend this pub to anyone.... More

This is the best pub in the village and provides consistently high standards of food and a great choice of drinks. Staff are friendly and we really enjoy our Sunday lunch here.

It and the buildings opposite are grey granite and forbidding but the inside is welcoming. It's not swanky nor ramshackle, almost shabby chic. The buildings opposite are civic and one can feel the past when the thriving town tradesmen and officials used the pub. There are no Ferrari or Audi A8 parked outside. The food is not haute cuisine but... More

We were a party of 7 on a Friday evening. You really need to book most days to be certain. With it being a Friday and pretty full we'd a little wait for the meals. Starters were all good. Soup, cold meats platter and asparagus with poached egg (a little over cooked). Mains, burgers, ale pies, beef bourguignon. Onion rings... More

Went in for Saturday lunch,we both ordered homemade steak and ale pie with chips and veg,we both thought it was the best we'd ever had the suet pastry was divine. For sweet we had the stem ginger cheese cake with berry compote again homemade and first class. We saw people eat the burger can't wait to try that next time.

As a local we've been here several times so I thought it about time for a review. Based on last nights meal the standards remain 5 stars. We had traditional fish and chips and sirloin steak. The steak in particular needs special mention. Not sure if it was sorced locally (i hope so) but it was the best steak my... More
