our room was nice and the staff once again were so friendly and we were made so welcome. Breakfast each day was excellent and we had double yoke eggs each morning. We had an evening meal on Tuesday night we was very nice and my meat pie was cooked to perfection with the meat melting your mouth

Very atmospheric little dining room with a twist On old favourites. Steak and Ale pie washed down with Southford Cider was delicious. Hunters chicken, Scampi were also very nice. Family friendly! Something on the menu for everyone.

Called in after a day out. We were welcomed by the friendly staff. Just had main courses which were extremely tasty and great portion sizes. We had the special burger and pie and our son enjoyed a choice of many from the kids menu. We will certainly go back when we are out this way!

The food was very good but the portions were too big. We all had starters and by the time we had finished them we were full and couldn't really enjoy the main course. Downside was that there were small kids running around and they could have caused an accident. Not the pubs fault more the parents for letting them
