Have actually been here quite a few times but that's because it's always excellent. We went last Sunday for a Sunday roast and it was just brilliant. A huge portion of meat plus delicious Yorkshire pudding and veg. Faultless service where nothing was too much...More

We had a local walk and followed it up with lunch. Great ploughman's and the baked yoghurt dessert was a lovely thing ! The biscotti was a little too soft. Overall good, if a little pricey, with a good drink selection.
