We visited on Saturday evening and the lady behind the bar managed to find us a table even though we hadn't booked and they were busy. The burgers were absolutely amazing and so many chips we couldn't finish them all. The scampi with hand cut chips was also great. Lovely country pub atmosphere.

Excellent Food, excellent beer, friendly welcoming atmosphere. We've been visiting this brilliant pub for a dozen years or so. Would recommend to anyone, who enjoys a proper pub, genuine conversation with strangers & everything done with a smile.. We've taken family here and marked special occasions ourselves & and never had a word of complaint.
