A neighbor told us about this quaint rural pub, it is renowned for its homemade pies , we have all heard this before however this is the real deal. Very different to any other pie ,fantastic accompaniments ,different mash handcut chips ,different gravies and different pea choice. You will not regret the visit. Wow.
