Our party of 4 booked a Good Friday meal and whilst none of us are of any religious-persuasion, we all decided to have fish which was absolutely brilliant.

Was here a year ago and the pub has now changed hands. Whilst it is still a great place to go and have a drink and everyone is really friendly, sadly the food is no longer fantastic.

Love pub and feels very traditional. Nice log fire. Welcoming staff. Didn't feel child friendly though. Good selection of ales. Seemed a locals pub.

A last minute decision to go here for a meal on Sunday. The lady behind the bar could not do enough to help as we had not booked but we did get there early evening, so not too busy. Food good, wine good and a buzzing pub. We will be back! Thank you 😊
