We visited over the bank holiday weekend and stopped here for lunch. We sat in the garden which is real sun trap. The food was very good and was served by a friendly young girl. Well recommended if you are in the area.

Went there on Saturday. Although quite busy, we found it very friendly and welcoming. Good value beer. Very good food and reasonable prices. All in all, a very good traditional pub with a local atmosphere
