Called here on Tuesday evening as we had noticed that there was an acoustic session being held there. Really didn't know what to expect but were delighted that we went. There was a very friendly atmosphere in the bar and the musicians who were playing (there was about seven of them) took turns to entertain and all were brilliantly talented.... More

The landlord made us and our dog feel extremely welcome and was so attentive to all the customers. There was a wonderful selection of beers, a few treats for the dog and a very tasty meal. We will definitely be back for a second visit when we are in the area again.

Nice pub - just established in what was a cafe. Good staff, good beer, nice atmosphere. Excellent plates of snack-food left in window sill for customers - sausage rolls etc. It's worth a 2nd visit.

Amazing breakfast, I've not found anyone that could make fried bread like my Dad's but this place can, high praise, amazing! Good price too, The man serving us could have been a bit more welcoming to us like he was to the people that had obviously booked his rooms. I'll be back here for the fried bread alone if I'm...

Great service and food cooked to perfection, having been asked how we liked it. I think this place has been here a while and it hasn't changed

The food was lovely and well presented when it arrived. The only downside was that we had waited for over 40 minutes for 3 breakfast and... More

Waited quite a while for food, but it was well worth waiting for and it just proved how much care was taken in the preparation. We both had a Sunday Roast. It was hot and well cooked. Plenty of lovely vegetables. The gentleman serving us was very helpful and attentive. Will definitely go there again.

Overpriced tasteless food (not worthy of the good location). Owner wears a long sleeve shirt outside of his trousers (classless).
