Really nice cosy traditional pub with a well thought menu and really tasty food. I had the chorizo burger which was really nice. Child friendly with a nice relaxed atmosphere. Lots of parking a short distance down the road.

We spent two wonderful nights in December. The Inn was magnificent, Rooms were cozy and comfortable. Breakfast was possibly the best in the area with a wide choice and presented beautifully. Thank you Tim and team for your wonderful hospitality. We felt we were at home.
