“Friendly country pub with fresh & delicious food!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Been here many times - highly recommend - excellent home cooked food at reasonable prices in friendly atmosphere with very attentive staff. Table service. Smaller portion menu too as portions are very generous - en sure you have room for a delicious desserts. Log fire in winter. Garden with table tennis in summer & benches or a picnic rug from the bar. Good wine list. Heated smoking area. Landlord Ed and his wife Becs exceptionally friendly - young, enthusiastic couple, who with their team will look after you - nothing is too much trouble. Very flexible food serving hours, especially on Sundays where their trio roast of 3 different meats is very popular. Steak nights on Wednesday. Extensive menu & always a Specials board. Book so not disappointed but they will always try their best to fit you in.

Reviewed June 13, 2013

We had a great night here celebrating my friends birthday - the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. The smoking area was more like a little hunting lodge and heated as well. Great fun was had will definitely be back!

“A Great Find”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We came across this fantastic pub by mistake, we got rather lost on a day out. And on our return home we found ourselfs driving through this small villiage ( belly's rumbling ) we spotted this lovely looking villiage pub and noticed they did food. And we had one of the best pub meals we've ever had, i would highly recommend this pub.

This is a great pub with home-cooked food. The desserts are exceptional!!! A friendly welcome and relaxed atmosphere whether you're popping in for a drink or a three course meal. Everyone is welcome and made to feel special.
