We had lunch on a sunny Saturday lunchtime. Pretty pub garden and delicious summer salads as well as the usual ham,egg and chips. Less expensive sandwiches and light bites also on offer. Great service and such a perfect setting would highly recommend.

Visited here on a lovely spring day. Nice to eat in the garden. Good food - made on the premises and it would appear nothing has been near a microwave. Menu variety and specials board have a wide choice. Staff friendly. Will be visiting again
