Just a casual lunch time drop-in with the wife and dog. Noticed sign outside saying dog friendly and indeed it was. Very friendly staff too and adequate lunch. Would definitely recommend and visit again, if passing. So would the dog.

We have visited a few times and have always found the food good and great value for money. Service is prompt and friendly. We have tried the steak pie, veggie options and steak salad. All good. The Manchester tart for dessert was yummy!

In 2016, the pub underwent an extensive refurbishment and now offers, what we believe to be the finest dining experience available in the area. Careful attention was given to retain the original characteristics of the building but still providing a contemporary feel inside showcasing an open fire, cosy en-suite accommodation rooms, outside beer garden in the lovely countryside area of Belmont Village. The country pub has added a new menu complimented with Gastro pub specials, a mouth-watering ice-cream parlour accompanied with freshly made desserts that is served throughout the year. For the drinkers, the pubs offers a vast array of premium spirits, selected fine wines and world beers to quench all taste buds.
