A good traditional English pub with a highly recommended restaurant - didn't disappoint. I had a ribeye steak, cooked to perfection and good value for £'s too. Attentive staff, cheery and helpful staff. Chef even came out for a blether with us.
If I'm in the area again - I'll be back.

Great little place for some hearty food and a fantastic pint. Ask the landlord for a recommendation and you'll not be disappointed.

Had a steak burger deal off groupon for £9 per person which was meant to include a starter. This didn't materialise. Burgers were overcooked and dry, no flair or real care in the cooking, no relish, sauce, gherkins etc which would have transformed them into something special. However nice old fashioned pub in a quaint country village and good local beer.

We had no reservation, however we received a very warm welcome and made to feel right at home. Excellent food and excellent service. Will definitely return in the future.

We have been back here five times. Each visit has seen good service and excellent food. Last night the restaurant was fairly busy and there was only one member of staff (Carl) covering the restaurant and bar. On arrival (15 minutes early) he welcomed us and apologised that he could not see to us immediately, but was actually much quicker to come back to us than a lot of other places we have been. A very good host, he was polite, friendly and attentive - we noticed he had some conversation with everyone and made sure they had everything they wanted. The food was, again, very tasty and we both cleared the plates! Also - real chips!!!
Thanks to Carl for making the evening special.
