A lovely country pub with a roaring fire. The food and service were excellent. Good choice of starters and mains. The restaurant is not very big but there was ample seating space and you did not feel cramped. Would definitely recommend. Will definitely return

Extremely cosy 400 year-old pub serving exceptional food, beers & coffee. Very popular and busy. Excellent service too.

The restaurants and pub area are full of character and if you want a wonderful Sunday roast you will find it here. Do book as it can get very busy., but well worth a visit.

During a long walk around the area I popped in for a lunchtime meal for one. The fire place was smoking away and the whole place was near to packed. I think most visitors were either regulars or have found them online. The requirements I...More
