This pub has recently been refurbished and the loos would rival any London hotels! The food was well cooked and reasonably priced. Good, friendly staff, especially the waitress. Well worth a visit and we will definitely return.

The menu here was varied with lots to choose from plus a Specials Board and a selection of three drinks deferent roasts so it took a while to decide what to order!

I had the mussels which were nice, not the best I’d ever had but the portion was large, the sauce was tasty and the dish came with bread and chips so it was nice to have a bit of both!

The staff were really excellent and genuinely friendly, exactly what you’d expect from a good traditional pub.

The decor was a bit tired and dated but the food and staff overshadowed this minor complaint.

There is ample parking opposite the front of the pub (clearly signposted) though do be careful not bringing your Range Rover or tractor as the spaces are quite tight!

Went with friends. Two of us had the steak deal, one had fish and chips and the other had rack of ribs. The steak deal was superb value (included a bottle of wine). The chips have to be the best chips I have ever had out - lovely and crunchy on the outside, soft and fluffy inside - great for mopping up the steak juices. The size of the portions is perfect and quality of food just great. Really good service as well - prompt, polite and knowledgeable about the menu. Toilets clean. Difficult to fault the place.

Would love to have had a drink or two here but we were asked to leave before we ordered as they were closing.
