I often go here for a meal with friends or family, it's an old inn which has character. It's not a trendy place to go, but if you want a reasonably priced meal its always has a nice informal and cosy atmosphere. I have tried the salmon with dill sauce, it was yummy and another time i had the steak pie, both were very good. The pie was home cooked with lovely thick crust and plenty of meat. The puds were ok as well, with old fashioned choices like jam sponge and custard. I had blackcurrant cheesecake. If you go on a Thursday morning the bell does a special offer of tea/coffee with a scone and the place gets really busy.

My wife and I have frequented this restaurant for special occasions quite a few times. We enjoy the choice of food, mostly traditional English food, specially prepared, but with a few more exotic dishes. The selection of starters is wide, catering for different tastes, and the food is always fresh and well presented. The main courses are also varied, and change to some extent, with the seasons. The meat and fish are mostly local and the vegetable selection is fresh. The accompanying sauces are all delicious. The sweets are wonderful and, again, made with fresh ingredients. Coffee is good and can be accompanied by one of the huge range of malt whiskies kept in stock. The wine list is good and reasonably priced, along with the food.
We've always found the service friendly, unfussy and efficient. Usually, a good mix of music plays in the background, at a level to disguise the conversations of other diners but not at all intrusive.
You don't have to book here, usually. Though if considering a large party (more than 4), I'd advise you do check for availability. We've eaten here as the only guests and also when the place was fully occupied and everything in between.
If you're looking for good food, served well in a traditional English setting, and priced reasonably, you will find exactly that here. I recommend it.
