New menu is lovely and great value! Service was brilliant! Still the best eatery in the area...faultless on this visit as it was on our last visit and the visit before. Consistent and polished services. Well worth a visit...the Sunday lunches are amazing too...!!!!!

Have been meaning to visit this pub for a couple of while and to be honest I was slightly disappointed in the food. The pub is tired looking inside and the food was average but not great for the price. The staff were extremely helpful but the place looks like it could do with a good clean.

We were a party of 9 adults plus 1 child who arrived to eat at lunchtime without a prior booking, last minute change of venue for us but not disappointed. Attentive staff, excellent food and service. Lovely pub set in a beautiful location. Thanks to all the staff for looking after us, we will definitely come back.

Superb menu and food with excellent service. We had a lovely round table. Most of the group had two starters which were mouth watering. I had pork loin with dauphinoise potatoes - delicious.

That said, Maisie and Lilly were now in need of a cool chilled beer. Our beers of choice were excellent and just served to pawfection. So much so, we decided... More

First visit here with friends and had a very nice lunch. Good selection of food on the menu with also a good selection of drinks/ales available at the bar. I opted for a Roast beef sandwich and others in the party had the steak and ale pie. All very nice and well presented. Great views over the surrounding countryside too.... More
