Just passing the pub and thought it’d be good to eat here. I know it’s only a ploughman’s lunch but it was one of the best I’ve had. Service was excellent and speedy. The friendly and helpful. Excellent country pub. Thanks.

Lovely pub, plenty seating. Very dog friendly- dog pawsecco, beer treats & frozen yoghurt. Food delicious and great choice. A highly recommended cosy stop on a drizzly day - worth the journey.

Went for a meal last night. Small menu which makes choice a lot easier. Can recommend the fondue cheese and bread starter. Cannot fault the food, service or staff. Service was like being at a friend's home for an evening. Will definitely return.

We met friends for lunch, and this Inn did not disappoint! We booked, as it's always popular - we were shown to our table, in a lovely, bright Conservatory. The food was beautifully presented, hit, and plentiful - I can highly recommend it!
