Really enjoyed the food on offer and the portions are massive. The 8 of us all enjoyed our meals from beef brisket to the farmhouse grill. Only let down on this occasion was the cooking of my rump steak extremely over cooked then undercooked when complained. Will definitely go back but would avoid the steak

We had a meal in the Bar, It's a proper country pub. The food is excellent and a really good choice. You are served decent sized portions too. Good selection of wines and real ales, Would highly recommend.

Came across this inn by chance and what a find! Family run place with fantastic service and among the best meals we've had. Reasonable price, good selection and very atmospheric complete with cosy fire. Will definitely return again and again.
