“great for bar meals”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

we always pop in here when passing; very good value & quality for bar meals; cosy fireside seating at one end, interesting history with photos on the wall to explain. Friendly owners involved in serving.

“Good food in a stunning location”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

We have been there a few times and it never disappoints. OK the food is pretty basic - we had the curry this time which was good - but the prices are very reasonable and the view is amazing.

“Nice place, but just nice...”
Reviewed February 20, 2011

After reading the reviews we thought we should stop in for some lunch. The service was warm and friendly. We ordered soup, and a brie & bacon baguette. The soup was ok, and the baguette was average; two slices of brie with cold pre-cooked bacon. Don't get me wrong, the food was nice, but only nice. I would easily drive past next time without thinking i would be missing out.

“Average pub food, typical price, nice beer, BEAUTIFUL location.”
Reviewed January 18, 2011

Beautiful old little pub, its only problem is that it deserves better food to do the place justice - not typical pub food from the freezer. Still DEFINITELY worth visiting for a few pints.
