This is a very cosy traditional pub. Worth a visit to see the quirky decoration. Very cosy atmosphere by the real fire but slightly unwelcoming attitude from the barman ....possibly the son of the proprietor?

An genuine authentic old inn with lots of character. Great value home cooked food with local real ales. Perfect for visitors looking for a real pub with lots of history.

Quirky little pub - friendly staff and good food. Lots of little, small rooms to sit in. Quiet but worth a stop off if you're passing through.

Can't believe the quality of the food for the price. The pata was probably the best I have ever had and the game caserole just exceptional. My partner said the fruit platter was lovely as was the turkey and looking we both enjoyed the desserts
