If ever a traditional pub food with a great selection of drinks was to be had then this place is a must. Also their Gin selection and knowledge of flavours is a great treat indeed.

The court inn offers a very different selection of food with some amazing choices along with a great range of traditional options. The quality was really good and the main thing was excellent caring service. A contemporary Inn with an old fashioned standard.

I don't think it is particularly child friendly as it is a bit cramped in the bar area for pushchairs etc. But i am sure the restaurant (separate off to one side) will supply a high chair on request.
