Lovely pub, food good and a bonus is they’re dog friendly. Lovely large conservatory with view over the fields. Friendly atmosphere and in the spring/summer a glorious array of flowers surrounding the exterior.

Visited for lunch on a Wednesday in March.
We arrived just after 12 and were seated in the conservatory by the window with nice views of the countryside.
Amazed how busy the pub was, from young mothers, businessmen and pensioners, obviously very popular with the locals.
The servings were generous but the chips were a bit undercooked.
However, the pub had a lovely ambience and the staff were all very friendly and polite. There was also an excellent choice of vegetarian meals too which is unusual in a lot of pubs. Plenty of parking and also seating outside which was empty on this occasion as it was raining .
Would return again if in the area.

We were very disappointed with the Steak Pie meals that all three of us had here on Saturday 10th March. Overcooked and looked like they had been reheated. Also very disappointed with the comments from the member of staff who contacted me after I had sent an email.

Stayed at the Warren lodges and ventured here for lunch one day and dinner on the Sunday. I thought the Sunday roast was lovely and very well priced.
Not 5 star as table service could improve and wasn't as welcoming as the Bell along the way a bit. But still very nice food and would return . Thank you.
