Had to stop locally to pick up some furniture. Had lunch here. Looks comfortingly ordinary from the outside and predictable but well kept inside. Just what the doctor ordered. Friendly, welcoming, hospitable. Average but sufficient selection of well kept ales. We'll presented and what seemed to be fresh good pub food. Pleasant garden out the back. Fair prices. Taken individually all these things would rank slightly over average scores but when they all come together and just when you need them they make for a high score. Doubt I will ever be back in this village bit if you are passing through I recommend this pub.
