Good selection of well kept ales, first class food and service. Retains the country pub atmosphere and caters well for smokers (outside).

My wife and I had lunch here and we were very impressed with it. The pub was very clean and while modernised it stil retains the charm of an old pub. Staff were very courteous and welcoming.
Our starters were delicious - you have to try the stilton knot!
Slightly disappointed as butcher hadn't arrived and I couldn't have a rib-eye steak but alternative steak was cooked wonderfully and I asked for fried eggs instead of chips. Salad was very fresh and enough for a family. Presentation of the food was exceptional.
Followed it all with a shared ice cream - delicious!
Will definitely be returning.
