The homemade soup was delicious, game terrine first class. we had a chicken dish for main course, and it too was faultless & such value for money. Good beer & wine. Lovely friendly staff. Thoroughly... More

Called for drinks on our way home from Woodhall Spa as there was an event on in this lovely little village. Service was great and we enjoyed our drinks in the outside area. Everywhere was clean and tidy. We will definitely be stopping to try the food next time we are driving through.

First class food and service at sensible prices. Very pleased that we had booked a table as the restaurant was very busy. We will certainly visit again.

A good menu selection at reasonable prices in a traditional pub which concentrates on food. Wander just a little from the A17 and you will not be disappointed. I agree with previous comments the early bird menu in the evening is very good value
