Very warm and welcoming. Garden has a very well thought out space for the size and is all new. Great food and comes great portion sizes- all fresh and home cooked. Great gastro pub food, hearty and great atmosphere!

Food before was great, food now is also great. Service reflects the relaxed nature of the village. Chilled, friendly, and without any pretence. The bbq tonight was an inspired idea. Seriously yummy hot dogs! Hope the new chef stays.

We had a roast dinner today. Obviously you must have a new chef. As it was disgusting, compared to previous visits. Yorkshire puddings look as they came out of Lidl. And roast potatoes were terrible. Bring back the old chef.

The publican was standoffish time say the least. No social distancing - felt very unsafe. Was not worth the journey or the effort.
