Absolutely great quality. Lovely food and a beautiful country pub setting. Lots of people outside with there dogs which is great and even though it's quite small it's makes the place. Lots of real ales too

Great little pub tucked away! Beer good and the food has that nice homemade look and taste. Portions are generous so go hungry. Service was quick considering we both ordered steaks but very nice. Will definitely return.
