Went with family. Fantastic home cooked food. I had steak..lots of flavour. Best steak i have had in a long time! And a delicious cheesecake for dessert. Lovely friendly atmosphere in a homely country pub. It is a credit to the management/owners.

Do you cook chips in the same oil as anything else? Gluten free should mean only cooked in a separate fryer. Thanks

Answer
Response from Rowena K | Property representative |
We have a dedicated fryer for chips, and our chips are gluten free not coated in a crisping agent, we also have a great selection of gluten free options on our menu which we are happy to discuss with you Regards Jess
