Used to be top end fine dining but has recently changed hands and is now more of a relaxed environment serving pub food.
We went for an evening meal and we were happy with the service and the food.
If you go without high expectations and are looking for somewhere to take your friends for a drink or a not too expensive meal, this is the place for you!

I visited with a friend mid week, the pub had one other table in for dinner. The barman was friendly but that was as good as it got. I ordered the fish and chips, the chips were anemic and just cooked and the batter on the fish was limp and soggy. My friend had the pie which she thought was alright.

It appears that the change of landlord back at the beginning of the year is now starting to show through a bit now , with a much needed change of staff from the previous regime.

I was fortunate to have attended there recently when a beer festival was going on and couldn't believe the transformation which has taken place and there were some excellent beers on offer too. I have since eaten there too with some work colleagues and found the food of very good quality and extremely reasonably priced .
A friend recently used the accommodation and was mightily impressed . This little village is well blessed indeed , two great pubs which complement each other perfectly !

Great pub in lovely village location. Have been several times recently - food and service always excellent. Recently refurbished to a high standard inside, with a charming beer garden overlooking the village cricket pitch outside. The option to book a room and stay the night makes this a perfect getaway.
