Had an evening meal here on 22/4/17 with wife & friends. I had the 'Fish & Chips'. The fish was enormous - the whole meal was first class but I struggled to finish. Service was also excellent & friendly and the pub was well set out and had a good atmosphere. Would be happy to eat there again

Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by a female member of staff and shown to our table. She took drinks orders straight away and brought the menu... More

When our walking group is up this way we always call in here for the apres-walk pint because there's a nice fire blazing, the beer is always well-kept and the ladies behind the bar are exceedingly pleasant. They are experts at making a customer feel welcome and at home and it was so nice to see a country pub as... More
