There was a very good choice on the menu & our eyes were drawn to the lovely desserts. 3 of us chose the fish, chips... More

All the food was delicious, served well in lovely surroundings. With two rounds of drinks it was excellent value for money amend we... More

I have given a rating of two, but that isn't for anything else other than the fact I came here from nearby Kettering with customers for lunch [Wednesday 11th January] to find it closed with no notice or any explanation. I checked on their website as I know some village pubs have limited opening hours and indeed they are closed... More

This is a lovely village pub, the food is very good but was astonished by the cost of drinks. This is a great place I the summer with a large garden very kid friendly. Lovely stop off during walks around the area.

Recently revisited here as they have new owners, the previous Landlord was not good with people at all. New management are great, very friendly and the service is excellent. A great affordable menu with plenty of choice on offer. 10/10
