This is a really nice pub. Friendly staff and in a warm pleasant atmosphere. The food was delicious. I'd recommend the steak and ale pie! I'd suggest a call before going as it seems a busy place.

Booked a Xmas evening meal for 12 people and the food was delicious and came out on time. The service was excellent and staff were very friendly and helpful. Finished our evening with a few games of skittles. Will definitely be returning to try more of their fine cuisine. Recommend to anyone to try this pub.

Home cooked food with generous portion sizes. Friendly and helpful staff, although a little slow to receive our sweets. But we were not in a hurry so not an issue for us.

If you are looking for delicious home made food then this place is a must! My husband and I went in for lunch today on a recommendation and have booked to go back in a couple of weeks! Pleasant atmosphere, good service and tasty food. Worth 5* definitely. We look forward to having our next meal there soon 😀😀

We decided to dine here mid week, so not so busy. The staff very friendly but decor was quite run down and in need of attention, this should have rung alarm bells. From the very limited menu, my wife ordered a tart with red onion chutney and goats cheese, I had garlic mushrooms as starters, for mains my wife ordered... More

With a group of friends and with prebooked meal choices, I was happy with my crispy scampi and chips they were rather less impressed with the sub-par roasts, but the main issue was that the lemon meringue pie, no discernable taste of lemon and a somewhat soggy pastry with soggy meringue. I've been a few time before and had reasonable... More

Stopped off here for lunch on the way to our holiday cottage. Friendly staff and a pleasant pub lunch encouraged us to try it again for dinner. Unusually for us we didn't have a starter but this meant there was room for dessert. Hadn't had a banana split for years so decided to rectify this. Good idea, it was pretty... More

Took our friends here for there wedding anniversary meal today.. All of us had the Sunday lunches and they were all very nice and piping hot too. The meals included puddings so was very good value. Meals arrived very quickly and the staff were very attentive. Really good and will return.
