Arrived at 2pm without notice and cautiously asked if we were too late for lunch. No problem, welcomed by the landlord and the staff and served with the best fish and chipe we have tasted. Very hot on hot plates and beautifully cooked

We went to this pub for Sunday Lunch with 14 people and a dog. It's an old traditional pub with a good selection of typical pub food. Because we were such a large party, we had to sit on a long table in a smallish,...More

Authentic pub where the 13th century original character has been preserved. Friendly staff and genuine home cooked food. Don't miss the Specials Board as the best items we thought were there. We had four generous mains for less than £80.
