Description: Fantastic little rambling gem of a pub away from the main road, it has a little for everyone. The beer garden has plenty of space and some shade for those occasional hot summer days. Inside the pub is equal parts cheer & charm with open fires for the winter walkers.The new owner Andy who has been the head chef for some months is continuing to provide mouthwatering, locally sourced food from a carefully devised menu which changes with the seasons. Behind the bar you can find a truly excellent selection of ales and wines

“Lovely friendly pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Although the landlord and landlady are friends of ours I still feel the pub deserves a mentioning. Each time we go there it is always enjoyable and the food we have had is fantastic. Also they have a fantastic range of real ales to choose from.

“Good grub, Good people, Good atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

I visited this pub last weekend and thought it looked very traditional and sweet. Not only was it aesthetically pleasing, it turns out they do a hearty and excellent choice of pub meals (for kids and adults). I very much enjoyed sitting in the beautifully kept beer garden in the sun and will certainly be heading back there again when I am next in the area!

The landlords were particularly lovely and always suggested drinks I might like to taste. They are very knowledgeable about what they serve and also came to enjoy it with us when possible!

A wholesome and excellent pub!

“Good pub food, log fire, friendly welcome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

We won a voucher at a charity fun-raising quiz last autumn and finally got round to spending it last evening. We received a friendly welcome and had a good, freshly-cooked, home made meal. The hot cross bun bread and butter pudding was generous and very good indeed. There was a guitar player performing in the back room, so the place was full of real locals and the fire was stoked well, as it was a freezing night. The landlord, however, can't feel the cold, as he was being teased by everyone for wearing shorts! We'll be going back and taking the children and grandchildren.
