Lovely old pub with traditional beers and welcoming atmosphere. People were eating and drinking and talking to each other, rather than fixated by mobile phones. The food was excellent and very good value. Easy parking right outside. A most pleasant couple of hours.

Pleasant afternoon meal. Service was a bit slow but it was good food and a good selection. The staff were friendly. Easy parking and the pub has rural charm despite its large size. Allowed you to bring your own birthday cake.

I have got a bad back and arthritis in by hips and when at home I would be lucky to sleep 2 hours without waking up. Here I slept 5 and half hours every night straight through mattress very comfortable
