Warm, welcoming, friendly local. Serves food of excellent quality, beautifully cooked with a hearty home-cooked flair. Mostly locally sourced produce and meat. Outstanding pub grub -- and they are delighted to serve gluten-free and other special dietary requirements if you ring ahead. Sunday roast is always outstanding. Generous portions of thoroughly yummy food! Their steaks are also first-rate... possibly the... More

Have eaten here before but thought it would be a good idea to update, as things can change in a year. However the service was as good as always, the food is still good, and everyone makes you feel welcome. It is easy to recommend the Lamb, both for food and drink if you happen to be in the area,...

We were welcomed by a warm sense of community upon arrival. The bar staff were polite and kindly offered me wine recommendations and generously sized glasses (which is needed for a mother of 3!). The food that my daughter and I ordered was fantastic value for their quality, you can't complain at £10.95 for a large steak and ale pie... More

Was travelling alone and needed a bite to eat at short notice, the pub was busy but the welcome was personal and I was given a very hearty plate of food quickly. A lovely village and I'm so glad I stayed here enroute to Cornwall.

My friend and I went here on the spur of the moment for an early dinner one Sunday evening. We don't live in the village - so it did go a bit quiet when we walked in - and you could see everyone was trying to work out if we were local - but the landlady was really friendly and... More
