Pub and restaurant very pleasant. Staff friendly and welcoming. The starters and desserts were very nice and beautifully presented. We felt the mains choices were quite basic but nevertheless very enjoyable.

A pleasant dining room and we sampled range the roasts plus some starters and deserts. All the meat seemed fresh and 'real' and the veg were nicely cooked (al dente rather than soggy). Everything was tasty and the staff were all friendly.
