Five ‘ladies who lunch’ enjoyed a lovely lunch here yesterday. A friendly welcome, a round table (always better for conversation), a cosy fire, good service, good food and a good price! What is there not to like? We’ll definitely be back.

No decent cider available. Put lime in a drink after asking if I wanted lemon!!. The splash of coke in a large vodka was as flat as water. Prosecco £6:95 was undrinkable. Despite being almost empty in the dining area we were seated inches away...More

A superb place to enjoy a pint and a Sunday roast with the family, while sat beside a roaring open fire! Great food and excellent service in a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. It's definitely worth a visit!

Excellent food, great atmosphere and superb friendly service. The location is also amazing and if the weather had been better we would have eaten al fresco as there was plenty of outside space.
