Tasty and hearty food served with a great choice of ales and beers. Traditional pub food, generous portions and well priced. Come and give it a try - then tell... More

Don't live too far from this little country pub and often savour the great traditional real ale. Attended on a weekday night with friends who had small children for a 7pm pub tea. Pleasantly surprised by the generous portions and traditional style home cooked pub food. Will have no hesitation in recommending this pub grub and certainly will be back... More

Very disappointing mid afternoon meal for four - Starting with a list of what wasn't available... it would have been easier to tell us what was on... how can you run out of Salmon when supermarkets are open? Anyhew I plumped for the Rump Steak and although nowhere near a full house it took over an hour to arrive... not... More

I couldn't fault this place one bit. All staff were very friendly and helpful! Service was quick and easy. Get yourself down on a Friday night for karaoke because it's worth while. I had a great night and would definitely go back!

A lovely little pub, lovely owners. Just feel the place could do with a revamp. We ate there two nights in a row, had steaks the first night & roast dinners the second. Seemed to be an awful lot of staff walking around, table was sticky which we drew to the young girls attention who served us. She did seem... More

What a fantastic place to have Sunday lunch. We have been several times now and we are never disappointed. The staff are lovely, it's great for the kids & the food is wonderful. A real gem of a pub. Very friendly.

Very good. Dropped in for our tea. 2 for £12 main courses served Monday to Friday 12 to 6pm. Both of us had petite fish chips and peas. Lovely fresh fish cooked in lovely batter. Chips good and mushy peas and tartare sauce. Size adequate.
