Went for a meal with my family. Staff were hospitable and attentive, and very friendly. Food was superb and was served in good time, didn't have to wait too long between courses. Will definitely be coming back. Also lovely to see service with a smile from all staff but particularly the bar staff. Thank you again 👍🏻😊

We went as a group to this establishment. A little off the beaten track, it was a little hard to find. When we arrived, however, it could be classed as a hidden gem, The food was exceptional and plentiful and the service nice and friendly. As a group we had a room to ourselves.

Enjoyed a lovely festive meal last night for a very reasonable price, the turkey dinner was scrumptious, service was great nothing to much trouble. There was four of us and we all cleared our plates, would have liked a bit of christmas music in the restaraunt, apart from that no complaints.

Description
This well known 17th century Inn underwent an extensive refurbishment throughout the whole of the building in summer 2009, whilst trying to maintain its traditional feel and character. We aim to offer fine food and wine along with excellent service in the relaxed atmosphere of our dining room as well as a private dining function room. All meals will be prepared to the exacting standards of the highly experienced team of chefs using the best quality fresh and wherever possible local produce. You will receive a warm welcome in our relaxed bar area where you can enjoy our selection of bar snacks and a choice from our main menu in the bar, and the main menu in the restaurant at lunch time and evening.
