Good food, great chips and lovely service. This is is a great find. We will definitely be returning. The menu caters for most tastes. Staff are the stars of the show and the welcome and service was exemplary.

A lovely country pub in a quiet location we had a table booked so arrived early to have a bit natter and a drink. We were given the menu while we sat and ordered before going to our table. There was a good selection of starters, mains and sweets. I couldn't make my mind up between the pork or beef... More

We popped last Wednesday hoping we could get a table for 2. The restaurant was fully booked but Louise and Mark could not have been more helpful and accommodating, fixing us up with a cosy table next to a nice warm fire in the bar. Superb food to satisfy the biggest of appetites, washed down with good wine for my... More

We booked a table for 4 on Saturday evening and although Louise and her staff were looking after a large Christmas Party the service we received was excellent. We have visited a number of occasions over the years and the quality of the food remains consistently high. My better half had just had her Christmas Lunch elsewhere that day but... More

Thought the couple whose place it is were great and the food was... More

The staff here are really nice and very attentive. A friendly welcome with a nice approach. it's more of a pub with food rather than a restaurant with a pub. The wine choice is limited but the food was very nice. Some great specials in addition to the main menu.

We found this pub after being recommended to go there from our hotel, Doxford Hall. As in the previous remarks the pub is very traditional, log fire, small bar area and darts in the background. The staff were very friendly and we ordered the meal whilst having a drink in the bar. The meal was very nice, I had the... More
