Stopped for lunch today after our walk. Great food and friendly service. We had homemade soup, pigeon breast and tripple cooked chips all of which were delicious. There is also a really good choice of beers and ciders.

We serve a variety of meals from a BLT to a Trio of Game - wild boar hare and venison - All of our food is freshly cooked to order and always locally sourced. We are a traditional Inn that serves exceptionally good food. We are well known for the variety of real ales available and during the summer months we always have real perry and real cider also available.
