“Very good value, very good food and plenty of it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

This is a lovely little pub slightly out of the way, but nevertheless, worth discovering. The food was excellent, plenty of it, served in the good, old fashioned way, not piled up to look like an oil painting. The staff were friendly and helpful, there was a nice restful atmosphere in quite nice surroundings. Some indications had been made as to what was gluten free on the menu, although there were no gluten free options in the way of bread etc. Still, we managed very nicely, and will definitely return in the near future.

“Definitely recommend it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Good food, service and value! Would definitely come back again. Me and my boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed our meals of sirloin steak and gammon steak and it was a good way to spend a Friday afternoon! Very underrated (not many people were in there when we were) and should be more popular!

“Home cooked food, Homely atmosphere, lovely views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Cosy, traditional pub. One half is the restaurant and the other half the bar with seating too.

Good, home cooked pub food. Great for a Sunday roast or mid week meal. We've been here many times, with family and or friends or just for a quick drink as a break on a long dog walk! Each visit has been good, never disappointing.

Welcoming, friendly atmosphere. Staff very helpful.

Thank you!

“Fab homemade meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

On arrival to the pub,the outside could do with a spruce up with outside furniture needing a varnish,some paint new flowers but dont let this put you off-

Inside is a olde world decor with beams etc & clean

Staff are very friendly

Menu is extensive & promotes all the food being homemade

When our meals arrived you could tell it was freshly cooked-it was lovely and hot.

Highly recommend this pub with great homemade food
