“Excellent country pub with varied menu, good food and reasonably priced”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

This pub exceeded my expectations. I took a party of 7. The menu choice and food were great and reasonably priced. Staff friendly with good overall service. The decor and layout was fresh and modern but still gave a feeling of character. Highly recommended

“Saturday lunch for 6- gluten-free, good pub grub!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We hadn't forewarned the pub that one member of our party was going 'gluten free' so it was a very pleasant surprise to find they had a gluten-free menu. The trio of fish starter came with 2 slices of gluten-free bread and the fish and chips was in gluten-free batter. There were no gluten free biscuits with the cheese and pickle but I was getting quite full anyway!
The ladies loo was spotless but the basins and wash area were looking a little jaded.
The restaurant was nice and warm and the service, helpful.

“LOVELY LUNCH”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Booked lunch purely on website appearance and menu. We were not dissappointed, beautiful old building lots of charecter. Staff welcolming and attentive. Lunch from set menu one of best we had enjoyed - starters were of a good size and the chicken strogonoff was excellent. Well worth the 120 mile round trip.

“Value for money”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

We had a wonderful experience when eating in this friendly pub. Food was georgeous and very good value for money. The owners seem to have instilled a very content working environment with the staff which ensures the welcome is nothing but warm.
We will definitely be returning very soon.
