Had heard about this place and a cold, wet afternoon was a perfect opportunity to give it a try. We were only looking for a light lunch but the menu provided something to suit all tastes. The leek, potato and fennel soup was delicious, as was the bread which could have been homemade. What to have next was more difficult but we eventually decided to share a small portion of beetroot risotto and a smoked chicken toasted sandwich! Our excuse was it allowed us to experience more of the dishes on offer. All the food being served looked appetising with skinny fries appearing to be as speciality. The coffee was great and hot, not the lukewarm stuff so many places serve and it comes with crumbly homemade biscuits. The serving staff were attentive while there can't be many places where the owner goes to Google the answer to a question that had us puzzling. Can't wait to return.

Just had a lovely lunch here, homemade burger was delicious. I think I'd go back just for the deep fried coconut ice cream itself. Nice staff. Only gripe it's quite cold, looks cosy with two fires but I had to get a cuppa to heat me up. The lady next to us kept her fur coat on the entire time.

If you are looking for great food in a real cosy environment with roaring fires and friendly staff, then don't miss this little pub.
We visited on a cold and frosty February evening and came out glowing.

Called in to this pub en-route after a tiring day. We arrived early evening and the welcome was very generous.
A warm fire in a cosy bar with good food and excellent locally brewed beer, a very welcome break for my wife and I.
The food was imaginative and of a high standard, we intend to go back and sample more of the menu.
To get a better idea of the character and food, visit their website.
