I decided to pop in with my husband as we had passed the pub several times but never been in. They accommodated us straight away. The staff were extremely friendly and polite. Food was great as was the service. We will definitely be back and recommend to everyone.

My son booked four of us in this pub for a lunch time meal as it was my birthday. We were shown into a conservatory, there did seem a lot of flies around but they eventually went. The waitress took our drinks order and produced the menu we chose our food and ordered, about twenty minutes later she returned and... More

We stayed in the cl opposite the charming pub. Had a very pleasant couple of days. The staff are polite and very helpful. The food was ok but could be a little better. We did like the info on the history on the pub from the menu. We will definitely return in warmer months.

Staff helpful but we gave our order she returned 10 to 15 minutes later to say sorry but she forgot to press the send button so our food had only just been ordered, that was OK as she offered us a free round of drinks. When the food arrived a steak smelt very off so was returned, we were told... More

Came here with two relatives today celebrating a birthday early. Being a Monday it was quiet, so we chose a table in the conservatory by an open window. Two 8oz Sirloins and a Mixed Grill ordered, varying cooking preferences, and all delivered to perfection and worth every penny. The gammon in my mixed grill was simply divine. Melted in the... More

We had steak here and two plus wine for £20 was excellent - steak was what you'd expect at a pub. However we went back for Sunday roast and it was all tasteless - very disappointing. Service variable - some staff very efficient and friendly, some say what they have to as they walk away - so rude!

Only pub in the area that is open all day, great menu and food served from 12 - 8pm. Inside bar is well decorated with classic brass items, including horse brasses. Great selection of draught beers and ciders. Good selection of vegan options. Lovely chat with the barmaid who is local to the village. If you can't bear to leave,... More
