This isn't haute cuisine. It is plain, good, wholesome food prepared well and served by friendly staff. We had ham and eggs with chips. The ham was excellent quality and generously proportioned. The eggs were cooked to my specification and delicious. The chips were well above your average chip shop standard. The two desserts, bread and butter pudding and chocolate... More

Real ale is excellent. Food is good (first visit it was excellent but second visit it was only good). Had lasagne and steak and ale pie which were very tasty. Puddings were also very good and not too expensive.

A village pub delivering well cooked food. Service very good and at a standard I expect. We hadn't booked. but it was no trouble to accommodate a table for two. Seemed popular with the locals. Steak pie, chips and peas for me with my wife opting for chilli con carne, a little less spicy than she would have liked, but... More

Pork overcooked, dry and inedible .Frozen, bland vegetables, plus a 50 minute wait! Management indifferent to our complaint - offered to replace the meal but no apology, This is a lovely old pub with lots of character and a good atmosphere... More

Popped in here during a walk on a beautiful day - greeted by very friendly staff, sat in a nice beer garden in the sun and served decent portions of food pretty quickly. Food was tasty and fresh, a fair price so for my first time I would come back again.

Although this was a popular day and time I was impressed with the attention of the staff. They we're very accommodating and helpful , particularly with some of the very young members of our party of eleven. The food was excellent and I feels I must make a special mention about the soup.
