Very rustic oldy worldly building near Stouton airport. They offer a number of locally brewed beers which is a bonus and a reasonable menu. The food was reasonable and warming which is more than I can say for the building which I found very cold. If you are into the rustic experience this is the place for you, we'll worth a visit but take a coat if its during the winter months.

Had heard really bad things about this restaurant, friends walking out etc Lovely place to go for a drink and bar time snack, bags of character. Ventured into the restaurant one evening. Get the right time and day and they have great discount deals on courses. Though a bit quiet. Had a lovely pheasant. Wonderful waitress, really attentive to children. Made us feel really welcome. A bit pricier than most, but still good value.

Regular visitor over recent years. Agree with all positive reviews: nice environment, interesting range of beers, varied menu, good food, generous portions, friendly attentive staff. Always satisfied. Only problem: potholed car park. Avoid main car park in rainy weather.

We turned up without a reservation on a crowded night last week.
We were shown to a table shortly and ordered from the extensive fixed price menu.
The food was excellent - home produced, hot, and served promptly
Thanks
