This is a lovely local pub, very cosy and welcoming. Great stop for a delicious Sunday Roast in the conservatory, or just a drink by the fire in the bar.

We visited for lunch over the Christmas period. The menu offers good variety and our order was taken promptly. Our lunch was delicious with very generous portions, and very well presented. Lovely flavoursome food at a reasonable price. The waitress service was exceptionally good. We will definitely be back.
