Booked a table for five adults for family reunion. Made very welcome by the Landlord Simon and his team. The Sunday Roast lunch was served on a platter that I carved and served. We all found the dining experience very enjoyable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our wholesome meal at this establishment, which was cosy and very welcoming. Good selection of meals, but too full for deserts which looked very appetising as well. We'll be back before we move onto the next leg of adventure.

Sunday roast is lovely. You get the joint on your table which you carve to your liking. Potatoes and veg come in bowls and gravy is homemade and made with juices of meat very good
