Nice pleasant environment and decor. Friendly welcoming staff. Good choice on the menu. Great views from the dining room. More than satisfied with food and portions and service. 9nly minor grumble cask ale too cold. Give it try. Well above the normal pub grub fayre.

Good pub grub at a reasonable price. Portions average size and a good menu to suit most people. Service was friendly and efficient. Only problem was the noise from some children which spoilt otherwise a nice evening meal looking over the hills

The dining room is much larger and more pretty than in most pubs I've been to. Beautiful views of the hills. Food was good, especially the pies.

Excellent meal, plenty of choices, told in advance of an item sold out. Several members opted for ribs, either as a starter or main and were not disappointed. Very attentive service throughout the meal. Menu clearly identified veggie options, also staff obliged with gluten-free requirements.

Booked a table in advance and we were lucky enough to be seated by the window on a beautiful sunny spring evening. We were a party of four, two adults and two children. The children loved the outside play area which gave the adults a...More
