Beautiful lunch in the garden as always! The setting is beautiful and the food is always consistent and good. So nice to go to the Sunday market and then sit outside for a pint.

Love this pub....the food is always first rate and the pub has a fun atmosphere. It does get very busy at lunch time and dinner. If the weather cooperates, the outdoor seating area is the best place to enjoy the libations!

If you are out for a drive and looking for a different style pub. This is the place to go. Highly recommend it during the summer when you can enjoy the outdoors with the wonderful garden.
