Lovely cosy place serving food that is very appealing. Spoilt for choice between venison haunch, pheasant burger, macaroni cheese, risotto, I went for the ribs. They did not disappoint! Staff good, coal fire, lovely place to be!

We love this place. The only downside was that, as it was dark and wet, I was not confident of finding the turning, so I set the SatNav. Big mistake. However when we got there, we were not disappointed. The meal was lovely, as was...More

Breakfast was not included when we stayed. Breakfast is only served from 9.30am so a bit late if you want an early start We did have breakfast one morning and it was very nice and not an excessive price
