I received a voucher to eat at this pub, as a birthday gift. We attended the steak night last evening - amazing value for money. 2 steaks, with chips mushrooms tomatoes and onion rings, and a good bottle of Merlot for £19.95. I challenge anyone to find a better meal for that price. The staff were caring, but not constantly... More

Popped in on Saturday afternoon just gone to watch the rugby. Was served by a charming man (I think his name was Roger 1 - not sure what the one is for). It seemed logical for my friend to join me for a snack there afterwards which was excellent fresh and home cooked. Would thoroughly recommend.

Well I wouldn't go out of my way to pay a visit but food was OK and staff pleasant enough. There is the possibility to eat outside in good weather.

We were staying in the little caravan site a few hundred yards away, so it was nice to be able to walk here. We had a delicious home cooked lunch, and my husband was delighted with the "real ales" The staff were friendly and made us feel at home. We were pleased that it is a dog friendly pub.

This is our local pub, and I feel we are lucky. Dave and Sheila make great publicans, and I am so pleased that we have a traditional pub back in the village. Children and families are as welcome as adults who wish to enjoy just a pint and a chat. I haven't eaten here for a while, but those who... More

We arrived as a party of three (family) at very short notice to be greeted by smiling faces at what I can only describe as a "proper" country pub. Hops above the bar, fire roaring and a friendly atmosphere. We sat in the "snug" which was warm and cosy and ordered the Sunday roast (choice of lamb, beef, chicken or... More

A refreshing change to the ponced up pubs, this caters for a pie 'n pint, nice garden with good parking. Pleasant customers not a 'C' in site. Very relaxed & friendly - will be back.
