Enjoyed a fabulous meal at this gem of a place this weekend. The food was divine, service was excellent and the atmosphere perfect. Would highly recommend. It's set in beautiful countryside so an ideal place to start or end a country walk.

Used to go this venue frequently but had not been for over a year. Wished I hadn't left it so long. Fantastic and attentive service and great food. We all had something different, Fish, Local Sausages, Chicken and a Halloumi Salad. Verdict from all 4 of us was we will be back.

Took some friends for dinner, food was absolutely excellent. I had belly of pork that was absolutely fantastic with roasted beetroot. My friends had equally good food, rabbit pie and sausage and mash. We drank long blonde, a truly marvellous ale.

Lovely settings and the food was very good. The menu was varied and the presentation was very good. Service was friendly and despite it being very busy we didn't feel rushed in any way important when two of our party were elderly and slightly infirm.

We went back for another birthday lunch and it was as good as ever. There were so many delicious dishes to chose from. We both had pork fillet with black pudding, stilton mash, Guinness and honey sauce, all accompanied by a big dish of five fresh vegetables. Chocolate pudding followed. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The price was very...
