Had a lovely Saturday evening here with my mother and 2 kids (8 & 10). Friendly staff, great traditional pub grub, Chocolate fudge cake made locally by Sheila up the road and good selection of real ale. What's not to like?

We shared a lovely simple meal here with friendly service and the weather washing over the rolling hills made a spectacular view. Dog friendly :)) and easy parking. Thank you!

Sorry but the outside of this pub looked dirty, cigarette bin was full, and side of pub looked like a dumping ground, read reviews before visiting , however, because of the first impressions it put us right off. We decided to go elsewhere.
