A traditional family run country pub serving home cooked food and a selection of real ales, beers, wines and spirits. Booking are recommended during the busy summer season. Sorry but we are unable to allow dogs inside the pub however, dogs are very welcome in the beer garden.

I had my 40th Birthday here and this visit was for my 69th Birthday! The prawn cocktail was really good and the duck was superb. Hopefully I will be back for my 80th even though we moved away from the area 28 years ago.

There are tables by the main road but you are a bit exposed. Otherwise there is a garden round the side of the pub on the side road. And there are one or two benches in front of the entrance to the pub.
