We've been here twice now and both times had a delicious meal. Lovely, good quality food, reasonably priced (but not cheap). Great service, friendly staff. Couldn't ask for more from a village pub

Down in the West Country visiting family and wanted somewhere for a light lunch Really good food: lamb, fish cakes and scampi. Beer was good. A thoroughly nice and relaxed Friday lunch. Hit the spot just right. Well priced for the quality.
