So or not, you soon feel part of the pub family. Looked after as if at home with warm smiles and friendliness. Sunday roast beef superb - the beef literally melted in your mouth, lots of it too. A lovely selection of well cooked vegetables...More

We are a local pub that welcomes visitors. Chef Ash rents the kitchen from us and prepares and sources all his meals. He uses mainly local ingredients. We are quite small and so do not have a separate dining room although we do have an area set aside for meals. There is a large sunny garden and a car park to the rear of the pub. Dogs are welcome. Children should be off the premises by 9 pm to comply with our licencing restrictions but can stay a bit later if they are still finishing a meal. We are a pub that serves good food and not a restaurant.
