We went for Sunday lunch and first thing you notice is the quirky nice decor, great first impression. Then it goes downhill, the service is poor from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave, no real welcome, untidy team on their phones continuously throughout the visit, feel like your continuously asking for extra drinks, sauces and cutlery...

This is a restaurant review, not for an overnight stay. Popular pub opposite the church in a small village with good local walks. A range of home cooked pies and croque monsieur's along with a smaller range of salads and other dishes, and a focus on main courses - one starter and no desserts. All comes with chips - again...

A colleague and i dined here this evening if you can call it that. My colleague had the sea board which was ok apart from the fish goujons which were soggy and tasted like mash potato rather than fish. I had the seafood linguini. The general flavour of the dish was fine but that pasta had been over cooked so... More

We only called in for a drink after visiting and walking in the area bit the pub was warm and inviting, lovely locals, nice beer and a friendly atmosphere. What more could you want. We would definitely return if back in the area, the restaurant looked great aswell

Firstly the food was late and incorrect, one plate was served 15mins after the other members of our party.We were then spoken to very rudely when we questioned the service, even accusing me of swearing at them..which I did not! When we asked for a refund I was accused of just wanting a free lunch in front of the whole... More

I think your memory may be playing tricks on you, as all this happened 3 weeks ago. Yes one sandwich had been missed off the order, and yes a refund of this meal was offered which you refused. You actually did not want to pay for a round of five drinks, a bottle of prosecco and all five meals !!!... More

Just had a delicious steak and Guinness pie with a decent pint. Good traditional pub with above average food.

If you are looking for a good old country pub with restaurant this fits the bill adequately. Great couple run the place. The Sunday lunch was excellent and service good and friendly. It is very popular with the locals which possibly speaks volumes.
