A good country pub, with a bistro and bottle shop. There is a nice fireplace and beer garden out the back. A bonfire and fireworks for the long weekend - hoe good is that! Worth dropping in to for a drink and some lunch.

First visit & lunch with the family here. We felt embarrassed returning one of our meals but they have to know so they are aware. We didn't want a refund. We overheard the chef saying there is nothing wrong with it. Unfriendly people.

Fab food- we had the steak which was perfectly cooked. Terrible service! Should be called the unfriendly inn. Chef was shouting at customers and the barman looked like he was about to commit hara-kiri at any moment! Almost worth a visit to watch the agro...More

We did not stay there but I am sure they have accommodation. We stayed at a cottage up the road called Halcyeon which was really nice. I sure a quick phone call will give you your answer.
