Lovely Sunday roast, the beef was cooked to perfection. Friendly welcoming staff and even a woodburning stove in the lounge bar area. Perfectway to spend a Sunday afternoon 😊 Our 2 veggie friends had the veg lasagne which seemed very good.

Had a great meal. The staff were very attentive. The seafood sharing platter and steaks were very good. Good selection of ciders and ales. Saturday night had a band playing. Kept us entertained. First time back after the renovation and will definitely go again
