Great friendly atmosphere with jovial,landlord. In addition to standard menu, a number of lunchtime specials on a blackboard give a good variety. We both chose one of the specials, this being stuffed chicken wrapped in bacon, and accompanied with usual roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, and vegetables. Portions were more than adequate,and well cooked. This caused us to forgo a dessert.

This is a lovely pub with a very friendly landlord and serving team, excellent beer, and superb food. We ate there several time and had meals from the standard menu, as well as from the specials board. All of them were excellent. They always have fresh fish. Portions were also sizeable! Recommend this as a good place to go for... More

Burnt food served and reluctance to offer full refund which led to bad atmosphere. I have been a regular customer until now.

We had the beef but there was a good fish alternative. Apple pie ok and a refreshing sorbet. Atmosphere fine and friendly with obviously many regulars returning,... More

It was just by chance we found this lovely pub on our holidays. The food was fabulous and the service was attentive and pleasant. We were allowed to take our dog in and so we were happy.

Had a meal here on Saturday night and really enjoyed it. Its a small friendly pub, and the food we had was excellent. I had one of the best steaks I've eaten in ages and my wife had the sea bass fillets, It was well cooked and clearly freshly prepared. No frills but good honest value for money. I recommend... More

We had dinner here on a Friday evening but there was plenty of room with only two other groups of diners but that may have been because we dined early. There were plenty of choices on the menu and a good specials board. The food was excellent and was well presented as well as tasting delicious. I was pleasantly surprised... More
