We visited the area for a few days and stayed close to the pub. We were aware that it had been taken over recently after a bad period but were otherwise unaware of its quality. We had a large dog with us which couldn't be left in our cottage, so a dog-friendly pub was essential. On our first visit, after asking the staff first, we were welcomed. Inside, the pub had a good atmosphere, a lovely log fire and an amazing choice of real ales. We asked if we could eat there the next night, complete with the dog. Despite it being a Saturday near Christmas, with a fully booked restaurant and a large party expected in the bar, we were accommodated with a corner table where the dog could spread out in comfort without being a nuisance. The food was freshly cooked traditional pub fare, with generous proportions being served for a reasonable price. A good choice of wine by the glass was also available. We ended up there again on the Sunday night, as we were made so welcome.

We stayed here for one night in August while attending a friends wedding in the nearby Godwick Great Barn. I booked it 5 months in advance, however when we got there they had no record of our booking. I asked for a reference number upon booking but was told I didn't need one so do make sure you get one!!! It was all fine though as they had a room for us. It was quaint, well decorated and clean and exactly what you'd expect of a good country pub. I loved it. When my fiancee couldn't get a taxi to the wedding venue the bar owner ever so kindly drove him there. He was such a great guy to do that. The next morning we didn't have to check out at any specific time which allowed us to go back to bed after breakfast to nurse our post wedding hangovers. The breakfast was gorgeous, being veggie our server said he could make us what we liked. We had perfect poached eggs on toast with gallons of fresh orange juice and tea refills. They took very good care of us here and I would totally recommend it.

We were in the area for a friend's wedding and stayed here. The room was ready when we arrived and was comfortable, quiet and clean. The bar staff friendly and efficient, the locals were engaging and approachable too. The full English breakfast was delicious! A splendid village pub. Thank you.

Stumbled on this pub whilst driving through.

Had a very good roast dinner in the bar as the restaurant was fully booked.

Great value

Staff friendly if somewhat disorganised when we arrived. We were ready to place our food order as we ordered our drinks but were told to take a seat and they'd take our order at the table.. we then waited 20 minutes whilst others were served drinks and food orders taken!! (The bar was empty when we were ordering our drinks).

We arrived late but nothing was too much trouble. We were greeted with a tray of tea and biscuits taken to our room.
The room was so pretty,quiet, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was well appointed with nice produducts and plenty of clean towels. The fresh flowers were an especially nice touch.
Breakfast was served at a time of our choosing and was of a wonderful standard and plentiful.there seems to be a desire to utilised locally sourced produce which was a really nice touch.
The staff were so friendly and helpful and complimented this lovely country inn.
I would certainly recommend for quality and value for money. Certainly would like to go back.

Came here on a recommendation. From arrival to departure, we were royally looked after, from being followed to our room with tea and delicious biscuits when we arrived late on Fri, to assistance with phone calls & wifi when the local signal failed us. Rooms were quiet, comfortable and CLEAN, whilst the bed was hugely comfy. Breakfast? Well, we're pretty fussy but we both looked at each other and smiled as the highest quality local bacon, sausage, eggs, mushrooms and 'door step' granary toast arrived. There is cereal (just ask) and we almost O/D'd on tea & juice. Nice to know one's car is off the rd, safely tucked round the back and even when the bar was busy, the room was silent. It's dog friendly too. Clearly the team is keen to impress and they did. Apart from wishing the wifi signal would reach upstairs, we're struggling to find fault. Erm, perhaps a second flannel, erm, underpriced? Oops!
