Just had lunch and it was so tasteful and wonderfully cooked. Will return as soon as I can The lunchtime menu was diverse from a pub type platter to a more discerning dish. Everything was fresh and so tasty. Really glad to have found it.

Perfect place for a perfectly super lunch. Myself and two friends had a relaxed meal hosted by Pippa and Will at this very comfortable pub. Food was delicious, especially the chocolate ganache pudding. Definitely recommend and will go there again.
