We swung by for a quick lunchtime snack, had the warm ham and also the camembert starters. Probably the best ham I have had and my wife said the camembert and chutney were good. Will book for an evening meal at some point.

Good food, good drinks, good landlord. An independant pub such as this deserves to be supported. Quite small so probably best to book..

First of all, this is one of the best pubs menus I have seen. Varied, and for each course there was more than one dish I would have chosen. Staff were really accommodating and the pub is clean and well kept. Perfect Sunday lunch.
