Fantastic place for eating, the menu is varied and the food is excellent, we attended with 4 adults an 2 kids an the service from friendly staff was excellent. All the food was delicious and freshly made, plus the puddings were to die for. WELL DONE to front of house staff and chefs, everything was perfect an we will return.

We chased and chased and they never responded and two days before we due to stay they cancel - at Christmas time when there were not many options. They knew we had a dog and that it would be even harder than usual.

Hi Brian, I am afraid the previous owners left before Christmas and the property has been vacant until this week. We will be reopening mid March. I can only apologise regarding your experience and hope you may give us another try in the future. Kind Regards

We went to the pub for dinner on Monday evening. Food was very acceptable with large portions. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The only slight observation is the central heating was on full blast and the enormous Jacobean Log fire was also on full blast...it was just to warm.

Lovely old hotel / pub - complete with squeaky floorbodrds walking down the hall. We stayed two nights to do a walk with family - all very happy with accomodation and food. And the fire. Helpful and friendly - we would go again if I can find another walk closeby. Only thing for them to improve on is the turnaround...
