Booked in for Sunday Lunch with my Dad and some family friends. The staff were really friendly and relaxed, saw us to our table and were quick to get our drinks orders sorted. Despite being fully booked, there was no pressure to order quickly, eat...More

Thoroughly enjoyed my venison, whilst my samples of the other dishes told me that the steak pie and the grilled swordfish would have been great menu choices too. Everything freshly cooked and piping hot with generous portions, indeed perhaps too generous. The pub is nicely...More
