Well worth a visit. Nice selection of real ale and good food. A little off the beaten track but has a fair sized car park.

Nice place run by enthusiastic landlords.. Will no doubt change hands again when they run out of money and that it will not pay.

All the food was great but what really made it was the premises and more importantly the lovely girl who served us. She was warm and welcoming, jolly and accommodating. Nothing... More
