I have been using this restaurant for many years now and the Sunday lunch is very good. The early evening menu is excellent as well. Always a friendly face at the bar. The parking is ample and if you wish to eat outside, there are plenty of tables there to.

Stopped for food with a group of friends. Garlic mushroom stater was excellent. Pie and mash main course was ok but bland. Mash cold. Tagliatelle was excellent. Service was good. It is worth a visit for food and a drink. Reasonable priced.

We ate on both nights, Friday and Saturday...

Nice atmosphere. Fantastic food. Quite a big pub with three rooms. Soup starter and mushroom starter was good.The steak main was beautiful. The pie was massive and very nice as was the lamb on the bed of mash. No room for pudding!

A lovely pub with restaurant whose staff make you feel welcome the minute you walk in the door. Great selection of Beers and Sunday lunch is plentiful and reasonably priced - better to book as they get busy. The bar menu during the week is good value with offers on - nothing better than eating beside a real fire.

Ensuite shower and toilet. Couldn't fault anything. Had an evening meal and two breakfasts. All to a good standard, and very good value. They do...
