We used to visit here quite regularly as the food is brilliant and good value for money. However it recently came to light that the hygiene standard was awarded poor and therefore we do not go anymore, shame!

Met our friends for dinner. The establishment was lovely and warm with friendly staff. All ordered something different and our plates were clean when we finished. A starter was missed but they offered a free sweet to make up for this. My only suggestion to enhance the meal is to make the chips crispy, ours were slightly under cooked.

A very popular part of this 2 day event is the evening meal and chill out in the Cottage Inn. We were made to feel very welcome once again by Julian & Molly which is good considering we totally take... More

£6 Sunday lunch, absolutely value for money. Three choices of meat, plenty of spuds and veg. Great atmosphere with a roaring fire, what could be better on a winters day.

We ate in the restaurant which was comforatable and pleasant. The three main courses were Chicken and Leek Pie, Inn Special - roast beef and roast pork with all the trimmings, and Lamb Shanks. All came with vegetables. The food was delicious. My Lamb Shank was lovely and tender with a delicious red wine sauce. Yummy! The Inn Special was... More
