A warm, friendly welcome and great varied selection of vegan and vegetarian food as well as other meaty dishes. I can vouch for the nut roast Sunday lunch. Interesting local history of the pub too.

Our second visit without the children this time for a birthday treat meal for just us. Came for the increased selection of vegetarian meals and great atmosphere. The staff service was quick, polite and frequent. The food was well proportioned, hot and very tasty. Again, we were very pleased with our evening and will definitely be returning.

I was attracted by Facebook posts telling me about the range of veggie and vegan choices, this is rare in a country pub so definitely something I had to check out. Booked for Valentines set menu easily online and received friendly email confirmation. Arrival, drinks and food order all very pleasant & efficient. Went for the healthier Guacamole pate and...

Wide ranging menu for vegan options. Nice building and setting with friendly and knowledgable service (slight confusion with bill but resolved). Would recommend and will be returning. The only suggestion I would make is that the starter options whilst tasty are maybe not as imaginative as the main and desert courses. It's probably 4.5 stars in reality.

Ok I was really tempted by the double burger, chicken breast n bacon stack but seeing as I am still trying to burn off xmas I went for the standard version! It was perfect! Lovely staff, great bit of atmosphere and a nice bit of cosy character! They appear to do a good veggie/vegan spread too. All in a thatched... More

Visited this lovely friendly pub on New Years Eve at lunchtime where we enjoyed really tasty well cooked and presented meals by attentive staff. Landlady couldn't have been more welcoming. A smile and a chat in attractive surroundings. What else could one ask for? Popped back on New years day just for a drink and received the same welcome. Returning... More

Right from the start, the welcome and friendly attentive staff I knew I was in for a treat and the fish was just right, correct amount of batter and cooked perfectly. Will return with my wife to try the other tempting offers on the menu.
