My favourite thing about this pub was the atmosphere, how it felt so welcoming and comforting, like a place it would be easy to be a regular at. The food was delicious and the staff friendly. My whole party had an excellent time.

We stayed for a week in the area and had a chance to try several of the local pubs. This was the last we tried, but the best pub food. We tried the hamburger, the sheperds’ pie and both were delicious.
