Lovely lunch.Pork fillet was delicious and choice of beers good. Looked like interesting wine options too. Atmosphere good, with no background music, just background burble of conversation. Just like pubs used to be, except the food is MUCH better.

Five of us went for my wife’s birthday and all enjoyed very good food, service, wine and beer. No complaints.

Always great beer and a Sunday lunch that is guaranteed to satisfy anybody lucky enough to try one. Always a good atmosphere and a woodburner that will warm you through.

Excellent food and cosy atmosphere. The place is remote, be prepared to walk a few yards from where you have parked your car.

Handsome pub in a pretty village with good beer, nice room, shame about the 'pub' carpet. Perhaps it is the peril of coming on a quiet midweek lunchtime but the food was no better than average, judging by the reviews below we were expecting better.
