Stopped for a couple of ales and evening meal. Sat outside on the raised garden behind the pub catching lots of sun. Food was nice, good portions and good selection of drinks.

Sunday evening really nice beer followed by some excellent food. Chicken goujons and fish goujons were fresh and delicious. Scallops for main course were amazing. Couldn't reccomend highly enough.

Great atmosphere and great for a drinking pub but food disappointing. Did not like tiger prawns, fish and chips not brilliant and chips like doorstops with skin on. Very disappointed as it had a good write up . Would not go againMore

Unfortunately we do not have rooms to let due to the size of the pub - however there are other places in the village we would happily recommend should you ring us on 01503 272233
Do you have disabled access? Do you have free WiFi? Do you allow children and well behaved dogs? Do you accept debit/credit cards and contactless payments? What are your opening days and hours? Do you close during the winter?
