This pub sells plain food which is very good for the price and quantity. Better to have their home made pies than steaks though. The beer is also excellent real ale. Nice people.

Hi there, yes we are in walking distance although mainly up hill! If you don't fancy the walk then a local taxi could bring you to us for a few pounds. We are about a 20 minute walk. Hope to see you soon!
