Our friends, who live locally, introduced us to this pub, which we really enjoyed. It was amazingly busy for a Tuesday lunchtime - it seems we should have booked. Cream of turnip soup was a hit (yes, really!) and all the dishes were good and very plentiful portions. Otter ale on draught. Perhaps the best thing of all was the service - friendly but not pushy, and efficient even though they were busy. It's a bit off the beaten track, but well worth the effort and we will go back.
