Great selection of gin! Ordered steak which was cooked to perfection and the pickled onion rings were epic!

Excellent food and service from this true country pub, a little bit out the way but well worth it. The chicken was outstanding. Well done.

What a lovely pub with a welcoming open fire. We sat in the restaurant where the service was good but unobtrusive, the choice of dishes for Sunday lunch excellent and the food was all enjoyed to the last mouthful. Will be returning!
