Family friendly, good food for a good price with excellent service. We have been on a few occasions including a meal for my partners birthday. The children enjoyed playing in the play are before and after our meal and I was able to feed my baby without harassment.

Booked this Pub for a family and Birthday stay. We had a family room and it was very good and spacious. Breakfast was very good and very filling. Staff were very accommodating and friendly. We were three adults and one 2 1/2 year old. Room was nice, cosy and clean. Would definitely come back again. Parking good too! Doggy friendly... More

To be perfectly honest deciding to have Christmas lunch out can be a bit of a lottery as not only are they quite expensive but the quality can vary quite considerably even when you book somewhere you know well. Pleased to say the quality of the food was very good and so was the ambience. The staff were very friendly... More

A very warm welcome on a quiet lunchtime. Service staff very good and attentive without being intrusive and the food on this Wednesday was nothing short of brilliant. Was later informed that this was orchestrated by the soux Chef (who is apparently only 20) as the head chef was not in! Highly recommend if the evenings are as good as... More

Really enjoyed our trip to this picturesque pub with fab customer service and a friendly atmosphere. Food was yummy and plentiful- I can recommend the pie of the day! Dog friendly with plenty of local walks. Just right!

We came here because we didn't want to have dinner in the same place for 2 or 3 nights. The fish we had was very fresh, and had been carefully and thoughtfully prepared.

We were delighted to have a choice of delicious dishes that certainly don't come from your average pub menu. Even better, the prices were very reasonable and the standard of cooking was high. Well worth a visit.
