Having been here once before, we were a little reluctant as to what sort of welcome we would get. Previously there were no tables in the "restaurant" part of the pub, but no offer was made to lay up a table in the bar area.
This time we received a very warm welcome, in lovely candlelit surroundings despite it being a lunch time! The lovely warm fire had a nice padded cushion for visiting dogs to sit on, and enjoy the warmth. We sat and ate in the bar area, near the fire.
The food is really only what I would class as average, and having 3 dishes on my plate, (one with a lovely home made steak pie on, one with some kale in, and one with chips in) seemed a bit over the top to say the least, and totally unnecessary! The chips were divine, but the meal seemed a little dry, with no gravy on the side. The steak in the pie was tender. My Husband had the risotto, which was extremely small, which suited him as he's been dieting for many months, but for someone with a hearty appetite it would have been a huge disappointment.
All in all, the pub was busy, and had a great atmosphere, and was completely different to our previous experience. We would definitely return, but maybe only for drinks.
