I am lucky enough to call this pub my local. I have eaten many times with my husband, friends, family and dog. Great selection of beers and a menu which frequently spoils for choice so good are the options available. I love to bring our well behaved grandchildren aged five and two. They love the pub and the friendly warm welcome we always get. However they are not allowed to roam unattended and understand the value of good manners and good behaviour. All down to good parenting. Keep up the great work Chris and Spence. See you again soon.

Visited for lunch today and couldn't fault it one bit. Food superb and well kept ale with friendly landlord and bar staff to boot. Will definitely be making the trip here again very soon. Stunning views and a spotless place but still full of real character.

I saw the negative review a few posts back and thought this sounds like out sort of pub! Neither my wife or I like having children running around out of control. We certainly would not let our young daughter disturb others. We arrived early as our daughter is only 15 months. We were made welcome by the staff and had a good table near the fire. Our meals were excellent and we had a good time.

I'm lucky enough for this lovely pub with it's friendly staff and home cooked food at sensible prices as my local. Local people, holiday makers and week end walkers all mix here to give a bustling atmosphere. If you are out walking, you can even take your dog in the bar!!
