This recently renovated pub with new owners has had a smart refurb with a bright modern look in a traditional village pub. A great improvement. The staff were welcoming, attentive and helpful. The food was excellent and good value for money. We will be returning to sample the evening menu soon.

But keep going, keep a sharp lookout for signs and be rewarded by a super food experience in a delightful Inn. The service was excellent and discreet, it was good value for money and the general ambience was superb. This is a place... More
