Visited back in December and we found the place very nice indeed. it is clean, comfortable and friendly. The food was very good, all the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were visiting the area and visited all the pubs and eateries, this was by far the nicest.

Attentive staff, fantastic food at a reasonable price, dog-friendly and a toasty environment with a log fire. Only minor issue is that there was only merlot with regards to red wine. Otherwise, an excellent experience and I have already recommended to friends.

The food is yummy with good portions, I had Rabbit Pie even though I was a bit cautious about eating 'thumper' but it was delicious!

We were a family group of 16 people (all ages) and Kate and her team looked after us with care and skill. The various meals, and over the group we probably tried most of them, were excellent and the prices were very reasonable. Highly recommended and we will certainly return.

Upon walking in we were greeted by a friendly atmosphere. The fire in the bar area was roaring away making us feel at home. Then followed by the owner behind the bar greeting us with a smile and welcoming us in. We approached the bar ordering drinks then seating ourselves down in which we proceeded on deciding what to eat.... More
