What a gem - small but full of character. The food is excellent; home cooked and delicious. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We went several times and were never disappointed. Music on Saturday evenings - what more could you ask for?

Such a lovely characterful building in beautiful surroundings, and the interior matches the old world vibe, with interesting knick knacks and friendly staff and a warm friendly atmosphere. If you like a real old English pub, this is right up your street.

Walked to this pub on Saturday 2nd July 2016. 40 people catered for with good food and a warm welcome. Would recommend it every time. Thanks to Collette and Mick.

Very friendly welcome in this tiny pub. Food was excellent pub food, home made and well presented. Great range of local beers and ciders. Can't fault how we were treated and made to feel we were one of the locals.
