Four of us visited for lunch and we chose from the very reasonably priced market set menu. The beef pies were delicious and so were the puddings. Two tasty courses for £15 per person.The service was friendly an attentive without being intrusive. We will return.

We were disappointed by the limited menu, expecting more game and local meat on the menu but the only venison was a whopping £21 and came with Kale & butternut squash...no gamey stews. The duck was on the dry side and the battered fish was...More
