Booked up for a Valentines Day meal. A warm welcome when we arrived. The meal was absolutely lovely. The staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough for us. I would definitely recommend this pub and will be coming back myself in the near future. A big thank you to Liz and her staff.

Stopped at this pub at end of a journey and received a very warm welcome by land lady. We both chose fish - both beautifully cooked. Would return if we lived nearer

Not a Michelin Star meal but very pleasant with a good choice of each course. Service excellent. the bonus for us was the location with a pleasant 15... More

Lovely cosy pub with a friendly service. Log fire was gorgeous on a cold evening. We ordered two different meals and both were delicious and hot. Would recommend, its worth a visit.
