I had an evening meal, there was a reasonable portion of food but I was less than impressed with the quality of food served. It is a place best used for a pint and packet of crisps. The bar staff were friendly and welcoming.

Called in here whilst out walking. A lovely village pub with friendly regulars (makes a refeshing change) and small but excellent range of beers. A great place for a great pint and interesting conversation.
