Excellent meal with friendly service. Choice of menu was good. We tried the Steak & Ale pie, Moroccan Lamb & chicken in chilli & pepper sauce amongst other things & all were lovely. Well worth a visit & they have lovely deserts as well especially the Rocky Road cheesecake

Once again, for the eighteenth year, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay (best weather we've had in all the years). Nothing too much trouble. David and Pauline very attentive, as were the staff, and the locals very friendly too. Food excellent and plenty of it. Needless to say we've booked again for next year!
