Sad to see this great Pub close as this WAS a great place to eat at reasonable prices. My wife and I had a lot of very good meals there, also you got a good helping and felt fed.

I used to go to the spinning wheel every now and then, but when I was there last Xmas, it was closed. I was told the owner passed away and the pub closed ever since.

If you get married in the village, this is a savage spot for photos. Great craic, brilliant customer service and lovely pints to boot!

Norrie and Tom couldn't have been more helpful. Such a fab pub. Clean rooms. Lovely breakfasts. Fab dinners. Music at night. Great craic. I was at a Poetry Festival and I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Spinning Wheel.
