Super pub food and atmosphere. Stopped in by chance without a booking and ordered from the specials menu. Delicious food, quick service and really friendly and welcoming (to us non-locals too!). Enjoyed sampling the local cider too! Thanks 😊

Great pub, food and lovely beer too. Highly recommended, but remember to book a table if you're going at peak times.

A truly nice old fashioned type pub with excellent polite staff. The real ales on offer were good and the twice lve been in, the pint l received was how a real ale should be kept and served. As yet we have not sampled the food but what we saw looked good and well presented. As well as a menu, there was a specials board that looked interesting. We intend eating here before we leave the area. I can certainly recommend this pub as being a nice experience.
