Had a lunch with a friend on 6th June and had the burger. It was very good and the landlady was very friendly. The new play area put the back looks great too so we will be returning as a family soon.

Had lunch here today with my sister. Warmly welcomed by all the staff and the dogs. We each had a roast which was delicious, well cooked and nicely presented. Meat was perfect and vegetables more interesting than with your usual pub Sunday roast.
