After searching for a good while on google maps me and my partner decided to go for this place, and what a decision it was! Really nice quaint little pub. Very nice welcome by the barman and promptly sat at the table. My partner had a lasagne and I had the burger. Food arrived promptly and honestly it was delicious....

Great local pub with excellent food, super atmosphere and lovely staff. Consistently good over the last several years. There is a bar generally full of locals, cosy restaurant bat and separate dining room. Also a small pleasant garden if the weather is kind. Lovely letting rooms, which I have seen but not stayed in.

Ate here last Friday night (2 children, 3 adults). Had beef lasagne, Drake burger and fish pie. All delicious. Good range of fresh vegetables with the fish pie. Comfortable location. Pub was very busy but service still very quick. Highly recommend

Visited the pub on Monday evening and although there were many reserved tables ,they accepted us with a friendly welcome. The food was excellent and nothing could be too much for any f the staff from the young enthusiastic waitress to the very knowledgeable chef,whose name I think was Lucie. She even came out of the kitchen to make suggestions...

Great everything. Nice beers, food and people. Great country pub. Good prices, everyone made welcome. Watch out for low beams especially after a few drinks. Log fire and real homemade food served. Highly recommended.

Although out of the way, this is a little gem. Very friendly with a good selection of food, not just pub grub. Very reasonably priced and well cooked food. Well worth a visit and best to book. Rooms are available so phone or go online for availability. We did not go for a room as I drove.

Met some friends for lunch in early December. Loved the wood burner and cosy atmosphere, Food choice good, quality good with nice coffee. Service excellent. (Table laid with knives and Forks, OK folks these last few words were to use up the necessary 200)!

Serves excellent food and have usually been there for a Sunday lunch which is always good. A proper country pub with Labradors in the bar and a good selection on the menu. They don't mind serving starter portions in lieu of a main course for those with small appetites.

We are in the village for a peaceful holiday and booked our table for the first night here. Well that turned out to be a surprise and luckily a good one. The menu was varied and there were specials to choose from. Our choices were duck spring rolls to start and Venison for our main course. The spring rolls were...

Booked an evening meal in this busy quaint country pub. Highly recommend booking, this a small inn with not many tables. Service was great, very polite staff and attentive owners. The starter was potted prawns and cray fish with garlic butter and crusty bread. Unfortunately this was slightly over chilled for service, the butter was too hard and spoiled the...
