We popped in for lunch as our hotel recommended it as a nice place to eat. The pub is a little walk up a hill and is beautifully presented externally and internally. There is a gorgeous crackling fire when you first walk in and plenty...More

Went for drinks they were a bit expensive £9 for a pint and wine but it had a roaring fire and a nice atmosphere. Would recommend booking if you want food seemed very busy even later in the evening

We called for lunch after a cracking Ploughmans lunch last year and once again, didn't disappoint . A posh fish finger sandwich, that took me back, home made with home made tarter sauce, really nice, good service too, always busy but lots of seats.
