We visited on Monday evening and were looked after by a charming gentleman. There was nothing that was too much trouble and his thoughtfulness was duly noted. The food was good pub food. It was warmly decorated for Christmas and we enjoyed the unexpected folk singers caroling. It was a very happy atmosphere. We will return in the New Year with great expectations.
