Consistently a good range of food. The menu is changed frequently and has lots of choice. This is so much more than “ pub grub”. We found the service good and the staff knowledgable and friendly.

I've been here twice. Both times with Trafalgar Tours. Once as a farewell dinner and once as a welcome one! The food is homely and great for a winters night. Pies, mash and dessert. The inn can accomodate large groups, but feels special.

Great to get your feedback and review Chrissie, for a small country Inn the inside space is very deceptive and we are able to host large groups without disturbing other diners. Hope to see you again sometime if you're planning another visit with Trafalgar!
