We used the lovely private dining room upstairs which is beautifully decorated and houses a large square table seating up to 14 people. We had to pre order and there were no hiccups with this except for an extra free starter dish we managed to acquire. Service was attentive but not intrusive and it was lovely to be in our... More

A warm and cosy establishment with an excellent restaurant. The place to be on a cold winter's day, a roaring log fire and a nice glass of wine. Very friendly and helpful staff which contributes greatly to the ambience of the place. Frequented by the local population and indeed those from afar, a real find for both food and drink.

This is a lovely pub / restaurant. Excellent for sitting outside with dogs. They even have dog biscuits in the bar. I have been at breakfast, lunchtime and in the evening and have enjoyed it all.

Came here on a cold, winter afternoon and scored a spot right next to the fire. The atmosphere was great! Ordered a veggie board and it was amazing!! Only criticism is I would love to see more veggie options on the menu.

Lunch for three. Couldn't eat half the fish cake as a two inch hair was discovered half-way through. Most of the roast lamb was OK but the lamb itself was all fat and gristle and inedible. I asked for English mustard and was presented with a jar of old dried out mustard with "bits" of food in it where others... More

I have now been here four times due to family in area and every time it's had its faults but the last visit was just pretty useless. The food was just not great for the money. My starter and an average steak with sides cost £42 before any drinks and the quality was not there. Asked for med rare and... More
