We stopped here for lunch on a Saturday having walked across the fields from Greystone Farm with our dog. The food was beautifully presented and wad possibly the best fish and chips I have ever had. Pleasant court yard garden.

Great pub with good bar food with a warm welcome. Ordered lunch for the 7 of us and it arrived quickly and well presented. Food was all as described and was both plentiful and tasty. Nice atmosphere with attentive staff

We have eaten here three times while visiting the area and not been disappointed once. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the food is great, the cider is great and the staff amazing.
