Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Visited this pub before and enjoyed the roast so returned - the food is great. Service was fairly good- we had to remind waiters for table water, glasses and spoons, and had to ask for a desert menu thirty minutes after eating a main. We...felt slightly disappointed that staff responded unprofessionally to our rescue dog when he became inquisitive at other dogs consistent barking and was met with ‘you will have to put your dog in the car.’ As we left, staff joked and made a barricade so it wouldn’t happen again This wasn’t necessary or appreciated and dampened our experience this time. The pub is just too small and was so very warm to have dogs at all tables - even though when I booked I asked if their was a more suitable dog spot.More

This pub is superb with proper food cooked to a very high standard! Very polite owners who are keen for diners to have a great experience!, Best eating out experience for a very long time! We are fed up with overpriced rubbish sold under the...heading “gastro-pub”. - tonight was an exceptional experience with all four of our party praising the delightful dishes! I don’t say “excellent “ lightly as there are usually some issues with a three course meal BUT this pub is special! Not cheap but worth it! Please do give it a try!More

First time we have been here and definitely won’t be the last. I had roast Pork Belly and asked for mash instead of roast potatoes, which was not a problem, it was mouthwatering. My husband had the Roast Lamb and he polished it all off....I’m glad we didn’t have starters because we wouldn’t have eaten it all. All staff were very attentive. Lovely place. See you again soon SamMore

We held my Mum's wake there on 1st February for 40 plus friends and family, the whole service was absolutely fantastic the food was superb and all home made. It has such a warm welcoming and intimate atmosphere and that just adds to the experience....The village setting is lovely, its an old fashioned country pub with bags of character. We will be returning for a meal in the future.More

I went to celebrate my best friend's birthday (the pub having been recommended by her sister). Parking was easy, with the car park immediately in front of the pub. The interior was warm and cosy, with a fire burning. Two real ales were "on" -...Rebellion IPA and Timothy Taylor Landlord. Both were in good condition. The others in the party found wine and spirits which suited their personal tastes. I had already looked at the dinner menu on-line, but be prepared for a large board of "specials" (from which many of us ordered). Service was excellent - the two people looking after us were attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them. As for the food - WOW! Their chef and his/her team delivered well presented food, which was delicious and enjoyed by everyone. The pub is dog friendly and has a resident, well mannered, canine. This pub has a Trip Advisor "Travellers Choice Winner" award for 2023. This convinced me to go there - let it do the same for you. You will not be disappointed!More

We gathered here after my mum's funeral for some food, drinks and time to connect. Mary had everything read and she and her staff were very attentive. The food was fresh and tasty, and the space was perfect with tables and chairs for our party...of 30. A few locals gathered at the bar, which helped to bring a sense of normality.More

Had a lovely Sunday lunch with friends. The roast was delicious but on the expensive side for £23.00 - felt let down by then being charged an extra £5.00 when my friend and I asked for extra gravy. I can understand not putting a lot...of gravy on the roast when not everyone is a gravy lover but don't charge extra when its not enough.More

I love this pub and the cozy feel when you go inside. It is beautifully decorated, and the food is fantastic. The garden area is perfect for eating, and you are surrounded by flowers. I splurged today on their roasted red pepper soup with pesto...and a salad with cold chicken, avocado, tomatoes, cucumber and spring mix. It was so tasty! The people who own it are so lovely!More
