We were a group of 8 for dinner. We had a lovely evening with good food and great service. And we split the bill with no problems! Don’t understand some of the other negative reviews.

What a lovely pub. We went for a long circular walk from the pub and ended up having a delicious lunch in front of a roaring log fire.
