Fantastic food, drink and atmosphere. The staff are lovely and can't fuss enough. Come here often, and never had a bad experience. The beer garden is amazing in the summer, a sun trap!

I think they do open on a Sunday evening. I advise you to ring and book yourself a table. The Black Boy is very popular on Sunday. Hopefully you can manage to book a table on the day you require. Enjoy your meal.

This is a traditional village pub which has a restaurant area and does very good, simple food, that is cooked fresh to order. The bar area has recently been refurbished to a high standard, and an extension has created an additional dining area which is disabled friendly.
