Had the best Sunday carvery ever. All fresh veg and meat, loads to choose from. French peas were delicious. Chef and landlady were very welcoming. Prices very reasonable. Definitely one to try.

4 of us ate here and were all happy with our meals. Not the greatest but well cooked, plenty of it and enjoyable. 4 meals and 4 sweets for £47 was a real bargain. Straight forward down to earth pub. No pretensions.
