This is a great combination of excellent food and real ale, in a comfortable pub in a lovely village setting. The prices of food and drink are more than reasonable and the quality is not lost by the portion sizes. Well worth a visit.

We visited this pub as a last minute dinner choice, just before the close of service. The staff managed to seat us and get food out to us very efficiently. The salmon starter came as a generous portion and the mains were delicious. We would highly recommend!

There was a good selection of veg with a bowl of cauliflower cheese. The veg was perfectly cooked, nice and fresh and firm. Most had pudding, a choice of... More

Quite a nice friendly village pub, with reasonably well kept real ale, thought the beer was a little to warm as if it had been sitting in the line. Ordered a steak and mushroom pie, now this was unlike any other pie I have seen. Basically it was a thin and very hard pastry shell filled with steak, mushrooms and... More
