Excellent. Could probably end the review there!! Lovely country setting, great menu of reasonably priced locally sourced fish dishes and barrels of guest ales. Friendly staff and free parking.

Very poor. Grilled cheese starter cold. Roast pork covered in salty gravy. Aluminium foil in my wife's meal. Staff rude and tried to overcharge.

Went here for evening meal and was not disappointed by what we had, the scallops were particularly tasty. The staff were very friendly. The pub is looking a little tired in places particularly the toilets which need updating.
