A hot sunny day and found a shady table outside. Waiter was with us in an instant and was off to get our drinks whilst we looked at the menu. Our food order was with us very quickly and was of good quality, top marks for service. There were options for a light lunch but overall the menu pricey.

Cannot fault the service from this pub. Visited in 2014 before it was re-furbished and it was in need of something fresh, which is exactly what it is now!! We have a very lively dog so wanted to sit somewhere where we weren't in the way or disturbing other customers, which the staff were very good at accommodating. Very busy...

Saturday night was busy and due to the new ordering system everything took double the time. Can honestly say...

Lovely location and fantastic quality food and drinks. Cosy fires in the winter, a sunny cove on the summer to sit and watch the sunset. Tucked away and just lovely. Perfect to relax and get away from it all. Children and dogs welcome. Reasonably priced and good service.
