I felt that the owner, Tony, was not a good host. He told me repeatedly that he hoped I'd lose my job as he disliked what I do for a living. He said he was really looking forward to seeing me unemployed. I'd just suffered...More

This is a long established family run country pub. There are always excellent real ales drawn by gravity from casks ranged on their sides. The menu is all home cooked and is served in satisfying quantities and varieties. There is adequate car parking. Sundays are...More

A gem of a pub. Excellent quality beer drawn straight from the barrel. Home cooked food that is superb, I do recommend the pie but only if you have an appetite to do it justice. It is the picture of a village pub.
