Great locals pub that welcomed new visitors. Very dog friendly with one of the most fantastic customer service I have ever come across in a pub. Staff were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. Everything cam naturally to them.

A great place for a no nonsense meal,by comparison to other places the menu is quite small, but this keeps the quality high in my opinion. We have visited a few times and always had good service and excellent food. The interior is tired but you could call it charming. The food compensates for the interior and the welcome is...

Very friendly old-fashioned pub. Traditional pub bar, with a good selection of Real Ales My B&B room was very spacious, with a very good bathroom. Good breakfast, with excellent strong cafetiere coffee

As soon as we walked in we were made to feel so welcome. Our room was lovely and the food was excellent. The pub is in the throes of being done up, but it really is great. We will be going back again.

We stayed for 2 nights and must say it was not the most comfortable stay we have had. I prefer not to write a negative review but the Inn was not up to any standard. We were checked in by the bar staff and given a room which smelt like a fish and chip shop. We spoke to the bar...

Lady behind the bar was very friendly and helpful when I ordered at the bar. We had a burger and chips each with a side of onion rings. When the food arrived...

Went with my girlfriend for a lunch time meal, the food was great and also looked amazing! I had the bucks head burger and she had the portobello mushroom burger, I can honestly say I enjoyed every bite and so did the misses. Will be returning again for another meal soon.

Went for a family meal on a Sunday. I was not able to go, but my family went. It was such a shame as the vegetables were not cooked. When I last had meal there everything was spot on. This was only a couple of months ago. Such a shame. Will not be going again.

Nice big clean and comfy room. Unusually a large en-suite with a bath and shower. Tea, coffee etc provided. Private car park, our room was on the first floor facing the front, but there was no noise from the bar and surprisingly quiet even though we overlooked a main road. Breakfast was served in the bar which was very clean....
