We popped in with friends - we haven't been here for years and years (not since Big Al was here with his swamp donkey cider!!!!).
Once you find the place (no mean feat even though we are locals!) the welcome is warm. The bar area is very narrow, so the chances are it will feel like a 'crush' as you come in the front door. Don't worry, there's more room round the side and back.
The two ladies opted for beetroot salad with goats cheese - very nice and more cheese on the board that initial impressions would suggest. Husbands went for soup (thick) and the egg on toast - which was a real winner (warning - it's quite large - good job my husband can tuck it away!).
Main courses were great too and followed up by a cheese board (between the girls), blueberry thing and my husband went for the chocolate.
We can't confirm that value of the dinner as our friends wouldn't let us pay and we never saw the bill! I suspect it was more than your average pub meal (our main courses were £15 or £16 each) but nonetheless, it was a good night!
p.s. the pub is dog friendly
