Lovely cosy place. Open fires and friendly atmosphere with great food. If you go at the weekend it's advisable to book a table. Will most definitely return.

I had Sunday roast in this beautiful country pub, but disappointingly the roast lamb was all fat. The whole menu was rather over priced. Lovely friendly staff though!!
