Have been staying with good friends this weekend, and although we had passed by on opening evening and got to have a good look round, we decided to sample the menu this evening, good pub food at a very reasonable price, very pleasant, chatty landlady and excellent surroundings! Well done on the refurbishment, particularly like the glass topped well, makes... More

I was almost put off coming to this delightful hotel by some of the reviews. I was delighted with the warm and friendly atmosphere and staff. Whilst there was an acceptable time to wait for the food to arrive, it was worth the wait! Very reasonably priced food, well presented and tasty! All good things come to those that wait.... More
