We visited the pub for lunch while on holiday - unfortunately we only discovered it on the last day, otherwise we would have definitely returned! A traditional pub interior with lots of nooks and crannies. There is a lunch menu and an evening menu. Lots of choice - all freshly homemade and seasonal. 2 of us had the chicken, ham and leek pie, with saute potatoes and veg, and another had a lamb casserole - the portions were very generous and wonderfully tasty, all fresh. Nice to not see a menu full of the usual burgers/chips etc and more traditional home cooked foods - similarly the desserts were homemade, mostly fruit based on what was seasonal - we had a summer pudding and a raspberry cheesecake - none of the usual chocolate fudge cake to be seen. Would definitely recommend - it is worth finding :)

We had researched reviews prior to our visit so expectations were reasonably high. We arrived at lunchtime to find a full carpark - always a good sign, particularly for a pub off the beaten track. We had phoned ahead to check that they could cope with one of our party in a wheelchair and they had put out a ramp for us and prepared a table close to the door. There was a warm welcome from friendly staff and a varied menu. The food was delicious and plentiful and the service was excellent. There was also a good selection of local ales. The only issue we had was that the toilets were not very wheelchair friendly - but it's an old building so I imagine there are constraints. All in all, a lovely pub with great food and great staff. Thoroughly recommended.

Booked a table for lunch with friends. I think we may have struggled to get a table otherwise as the pub was very busy, especially with families (and unfortunately one family with very noisy uncontrolled children), which wasn't the pub's fault I have to say.
Three of us had meals (three courses for £12.75) from the Pensioner's menu which were excellent and very good value. There was a good choice, and the option of having one, two or three courses. Fair size portions too. One other had Steak & Stilton pie from the main chalkboard menu which was also excellent, served with veg & saute potatoes.
Friendly staff, not too long a wait for food, and nice selection of beers.
Would not hesitate to return.

A great place to eat and drink with good restaurant space and a varied menu. Car parking at the rear.,good sized and shaded pub garden as well as outside table around the inn. The food was excellent and a good choice of beer / lager. The waiting time once ordered was acceptable. .the only down point is the wait to order beer and food , gold star to the one member of staff who was taking the orders but really she should have been able to summon help in a parched ,packed bar
