Four of us turned up early for pre-booked Sunday lunch and we couldn't have been made more welcome. All the staff are exceptionally friendly and don't give the impression they are very busy even when they are! There's time to chat, the food is tasty, varied and well cooked and a beautiful fire was warm and welcoming. We all thoroughly...

The place has had a few improvements since I was here last and is very smart. A well stocked bar with a good choice of real ales as well as a good selection of wines. The meal we had was really good. Nothing fancy, but very well presented, tasty and nicely garnished. I think we will be visiting again before...

Been twice in December, once as a couple and once with friends, both lunchtimes. Excellent menu. Fair prices, super portions, and very good quality. We will be back. Also does rooms. 'Out in the sticks' be careful driving there.

We took a couple of friends out to lunch and arrived to find the local shoot had booked a table of about 20 along with all the other guests eating. We thought it would be difficult to get served and to have something to eat, but we're very well looked after and the food was incredible.
