This is fantastic pub for lunch. Classic pub menu with the emphasis on quality food that is well cooked. Homemade, tasty, fat chips!!!! None of that frozen fluff of nothing. The pub was busy but we didn't have to wait too long but we were occupied by the daily newspapers. Great pub to eat in with very friendly staff &...

Booked for dinner for 8 of us - a family meal. Food was excellent, we had various dishes: starters were Garlic Prawns on toasted ciabatta and Deep fried Whitebait. Excellent fish and chips for mains. All really fresh. Service was great with staff going out of their way to make you feel welcome. Recommend it.

We visited the pub for dinner and were so glad we did. From the outset the staff gave us a warm welcome and were exceptionally friendly and courteous. The food was delicious, served hot and was reasonably priced. The choice of ice creams was great and well recommended. The only room for improvement we found was the onion rings: they...

We had not been here for a while and had read it had been refurbished. Well the main bar area didn't look too different but pleasing it hasn't had it's character removed. My husband likes his real ale and wasn't disappointed. We both had lasagne which was very good. It's a lovely village pub on the edge of the village...
