We visited as a party of 6 on a Saturday night. The pub was fairly busy in relation to the size of the dining area (only 6 or 7 tables). Although things are very 'olde worldy/quirky' and service isn't the quickest, the food is absolutely...More

We first found this location on a previous visit 4 years ago when we were staying nearby. We went first for their Sunday lunch (had the lamb) and then went back a couple of time for dinner. One of the best sticky toffee puddings that...More

Very mixed place, pie was good, scampi good, lasagne ok, chips excellent, burger not so good and cold veg. As others have said the exterior is horrible, the inside could be described as cosy but on a dark night I would say it maintains a...More
