Enjoyed a lovely evening with friends who live in the village and brought us here. Good food, great atmosphere and nice service. Beautiful pub in a traditional village setting. Thank you!

Such a shame - lovely place and setting but customer care and service really poor. From the outset didn't bode well, took ages just to get drinks. We'd booked a table for 1pm and ordered our food promptly. The computer system seemed to warrant more...More

Had a great welcome with lovely staff at this charming pub not far from the A43 - worth just a couple of miles from it to spend time in this quirky pub doubling up as a museum!! Nice and friendly welcome from the landlord and...More
