Met friends here for Sunday lunch, about half way between us all! Very enjoyable meal with a shared bottle of Pinot Grigio. Lovely friendly service in a lovely pub. Plenty of parking too. Look forward to visiting again.

Lovely food, clean and pleasant restaurant and bar area. Needs to have more of a dessert selection though.
