I had a really nice veggie option meal here... 4 butternut arancini on a bed of beetroot and fresh salad greens with an ample side dish of freshly steamed veg. Delicious food and extremely friendly service. Would go back in s heartbeat!

A lovely little pub/restaurant. We dined here one evening and had a delicious meal with some very good local ale. We were warmly welcomed by the team and we're given good service. We would return
