Combining everything you'd expect from a traditional English country pub, but with the added bonus of a superb range of in-house pizzas, pastas and salads, you will be assured of a warm welcome in this recently re-opened 16th century thatched building. A full bar is available with a range of cask ales, spirits and wine. We have our own car park and an extensive garden to the rear. We welcome both families and dogs! If you just want a coffee or afternoon tea rather than a meal, you're equally welcome - we are open all day from noon, 7 days a week!
