Really cosy family run pub. We saw the new year in here with the friendly locals all topped off with vodka jelly shots, a free buffet and lots of laughs

My friend and I stumbled on this little gem for New Year’s Eve. Really great atmosphere, everyone knew each other and they were very friendly. Great family run place, good for a drink and a laugh.

Visited the pub at lunch time today. After a walk from the train station through the beautiful village with its knitted decorations we arrived at the pub, lunch was good with home made food. Very small eating area advisable to book.More
