Excellent service and good food at this quaint country public house. Was given the choice of where to sit and we felt very relaxed there.

A friendly little pub no loud music or hamming machines pool of any other noisy ocurance. A great chile out place to chat to friends. Service can be a little slow at times but worth the wait.
