I love this pub a lot, I come here regularly and get on with the staff very well. They are very friendly people and welcoming. I also love the food here and honestly couldn't fault much. Oh and they are dog friendly which is great!

This pub was built in 1926 so it misses the charm of an Olde Worlde c17th/c18th village pub and the 'pizzazz' of a modern one. Its high ceilings and an air of dark dinginess pervades its atmosphere which seems to beg not merely a Spring...More

Thank you for your comments. We are working on updating the decor but, as we are a tenancy, it takes time (as it costs us a lot of money). We have updated the toilets and the TV room and spent a lot of money on...More

I like this pub, it's a good local serving better-than-normal pub food. Unfortunately, my partner doesn't enjoy the fact that it's very dog-friendly, in that, they are everywhere! For a pub serving such good food it is something that tends to clash for some people....More

Went here for acoustic night on Sunday evening. Saw Matt O'Neil play live. Good singer and good songs. If music was a little quieter then would be perfect because then would be able to chat more freely whilst listening to music. Friendly staff and nice...More

Surprisingly, our party of three chose the same dishes for lunch although sampled different desserts. It was all good, delicious and hot. Virtually a standard lunch of scampi with triple dipped chips and mushy peas, chosen so they would stick to my knife! For dessert,...More
