When I visited Ivan was in charge. This is a very nice country pub with outside seating and room for the kids. Food was excellent and atmosphere good. Reasonably priced and good service.

They do a very good sunday lunch, though the Yorkshires can be a bit spongy. But meats are excellent and service top-notch. The dining room is often packed with eaters, including families, so can be noisy. Not for a quiet meal. Staff are excellent.
