We visited this village pub "on spec" at 6pm on a Tuesday in September and had a very friendly welcome. We were surprised when they had to check whether a table was available, but by the time we left the place was full of diners, a good sign!
I had a pint of the local brew while waiting for our table, served at exactly the right temperature, and obviously the landlord knew how to keep his beer. The landlord struck up conversation with us taking an interest in where we were from and where we were staying.
Once we were shown to our table we were treated to some excellent food. I had a sea bass dish from the specials board, done with lime and ginger, perfectly cooked and very moreish! My wife had a fried chicken dish with mozzarella which she really enjoyed. We followed up with desserts, my wife opting for a chocolatey dish (if it's got chocolate in, she goes for it every time!) and I also had chocolate, in the form of a huge chocolate-nut sundae.Service throughout was friendly and attentive, without being "in your face".
Our bill was a pleasant surprise, considering the quality and quantity of food we'd had.
By the time we left, the pub was very busy indeed, quite reassuring in these times when the hospitality industry is struggling. We'll be back.
