Had Sunday lunch today at this traditional countryside pub. Very friendly staff. Good suggestion don't go large unless you have a very big appetite. The portion sizes are generous. If I had a tiny gripe my Yorkshire puddings were rubbery.

From the welcoming greeting to the generous portions of wonderful fresh food you will be relaxed and unhurried. This is not fast food but well worth the wait. Excellent Value.
