This use to be a lovely village pub however upon our recent visit we received unfair treatment. Keith (the landlord) was extremely drunk and all over the bar, being rude to customers and staff.. just unacceptable. Will never return.

We had dinner and drinks in here while we were on our weekend away, such a lovely local pub with Christmas decorations and fireplace going. Very cozy and nice place to be, we were welcomed with open arms :)
