Friendly staff and good beer make this a must visit if in the area. The food ( I had monkfish in tarragon cream sauce, he had streak and ale pie) was piping hot. My monkfish was in a cream sauce, not just swimming with cream...More

The most wonderful Sunday lunch can be had here in the quaint little pub, This is at least the third time we have had a Sunday here and cannot fault it in anyway. Well done to all concerned, especially in these trying times.

Good value for money, food quite good didn’t book a sauce with my steak although didn’t see any on the menu either. Bit surreal with the plastic screens killing some of the ambience at present but will certainly return on next visit to the area.
