Friends who live nearby suggested this - more of a restaurant than a pub, very small but well set out and lovely and warm. Thought that the sunday lunch was good value at £10.95 - we all went for the beef. A good sized portion, plenty of spuds and veg - beautiful cooked. Excellent service, quick and we waited the...

Bit late leaving this review but wanted to all the same because it was so lovely. My husband booked a table for us and my parents to celebrate my birthday. It was a very cold day but what a warm welcome we received; roaring fire and lovely landlord. Food was varied (I'm a veggie) and delicious. Such a sweet waitress... More
