I stopped here for lunch on Sunday and it was very busy. Good sign! I had the steak and ale home made pie and it was very nice. Plus a pint of local beer. Job done.

The Foresters is where the locals go for a drink and some food. The tourists go to the Woolpack. It's been done up a few years ago and has a nice garden out the back. Good beer, good snacks, a proper country pub

As far as I'm aware, breakfast was only for residents, however I understand that the current proprietors were looking to sell the business, so maybe worth a call direct to find out for sure
