Traditional village pub. Always a warm welcome from owners Mark and Louise and excellent service. The pub prides itself on its fresh local produce which is beautifully cooked. Always plenty of choice and several daily specials to choose from.

Very, very nice food. Ploughman's was colossal, as was the ham salad. The mince and cheesy-suet dumplings a very big hit. Exceptional staff. Small but great menu, very quiet pub. Huge portions.
