Probably eat here one a week and they’re always excellent. Eaten here 3 times in the last week. Had fish and chips, chicken pie and steak and they were all superb.

Our dinner on Saturday was outstanding. Beautiful place, lovely setting, staff very friendly and welcoming. Try the shin of beef if you go I had it and it was lush. My husband had the rabbit and thought it was delicious. Thank you for great evening

Couldn't ok in at another restaurant so came to this. Lovely cauliflower soup, bit too creamy for me, lovely lambs liver with sweet potato mash etc. Service slow but we had plenty of time.
