This place has improved steadily over the last few years and offers a good range of beers and spirits and friendly (and dog-friendly) service.

For a village pub it is very expensive, I’ve paid less in Leeds city centre. Our rounds were 2 GnT’s, 1 pint of bitter and a pint of lager £18. I won’t be visiting here again in a hurry.
