A random stop that turned out to be amazing. Really welcoming and friendly staff, tasty homemade pie and excellent burger. We'll definitely stop here again.

Found this pub by accident whilst looking for somewhere to eat on a Friday night. Friendly hosts, excellent food and superb HSB. Large car park with a river running alongside with seating on the bank. We will certainly return when next in the area.
