Met friends in this congenial pub which had friendly and welcoming staff. Dinner was fine and portions were generous. Not gastro pub standard but straightforward pub grub. Excellent beers. Will return.

Turned up here on the off chance for Sunday lunch, whilst holidaying in the area. Despite being busy, they were able to accommodate 5 of us. Absolutely delicious food and fantastic service! Would definitely recommend this place. Much more exciting than it's name would suggest

We had a delightful lunch here in the pretty beer garden. Varied menu, all sounded delicious - and we were all delighted with our choices. Service is outstanding. Excellent value for money. Would highly recommend to all.
