After attending the Remembrance Day Service at our village church four of us went to the local pub for their lovely carvery dinner. Choice of beef or pork or some of each. This was served by Hayley expertly and with loaded plates we tucked into this great meal. It was very busy but no problems encountered. After wading through this... More

We chose to have the Carvery and we were supplied with a large sized portion of beef and turkey and helped our self to a great selection of vegetables, gravy and sauces. I even had two Yorkshire Puddings. After enjoying this great meal we... More

The Sunday Carvery is one of the best we've ever had. Meat and vegetables cooked to perfection and lots of choice. We also ate in the restaurant and the food is delicious. All the staff are friendly and welcoming and the pub has a lovely atmosphere. This is definitely a place to return to time and again.

I've stayed here several times on business, Paul, Hayley and Shaun are very friendly and accommodating. Food is great as well, but what is just as important is the patrons are not stuffy and arrogant as I've experienced in some of the local pubs. A real treat and a comfortable place to stay. Thank you.

We had food in the restaurant which was outstanding, with the chilli con carne and Duke burger exceptional. Chips were the best i have ever had in a pub! Prices were more than... More
