We visited the Rainbow for a Evening meal and had a steak which came on a rock plate so you can cook it the way you want, it was delicious. There is a good selection of beer available, definitely worth a visit.

Friendly local people enjoying a Saturday afternoon drink. Noisy, surprisingly busy and reasonable outdoor comfort. A reasonable range of well kept beers and a good atmosphere.

A typical little village pub, plenty of nice food to choose from at a very decent price. The food was really really good!!! We did have to ask for our table to be cleared after which was frustrating. However the service and standard of food/drink...More
