Took my dogs in, but weren't really made to feel welcome. Maybe small ones are OK. Food looked good. Maybe next time, we'll go without dogs.

This is the sort of pub I do not like. Ambience and garden are fine, but my heart always sinks when you see a very long menu, which means the freezer is employed. Food was poor, clearly from freezer, and service was slow.More

Visit here quite regularly. Particularly enjoy the Sunday lunch.....lots of vegetables as well as meat. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Lovely outside seating area, especially in the summer.

The greyhound in Wiggington is not too far away and serves good food and has a decent garden. Best to book for the evening though as it gets rammed!
