Very nice food here and great atmosphere. They also have a lovely garden setting. They also do some lovely seasonal puddings on the specials menu e.g. At Easter they had hot cross bun cheesecake which was lovely.

We arrived unannounced on a Saturday evening and a tabe was found for us straight away. Service was quick, accurate and friendly and the food excellent. We had the pork belly and the steak pie - both great. Lots of parking at the back and very comfortable surroundings inside. Thankyou.

Have been twice this month, once for dinner and again for Sunday lunch. I must say, on both occasions the meals we had were absolutely gorgeous and the service was super, friendly and efficient. This is a jewel of a pub, and so clean and tidy, inside and out. Recommended, go see, go taste.

The menu is not extensive , but the food is delicious. The place has been refurbished and accordingly the prices have risen. I was a bit surprised to be charged £3 for some bread to go with our starters. The staff is friendly and efficient, and although it was Saturday lunch time, the place was quite busy. The garden is...

Has a good park, nice garden and inside is comfortable and nice ambience. Food is great, and vegetarian options great. The desserts excellent. My husband loved the sticky toffee pudding.

Our welcome was warm & friendly - the meal was the best fish pie & steak & ale pie we had ever had in our 75 years on the planet. We will certainly return.
