Delightful Inn with a rustic feel very friendly and helpful staff and a very varied menu on offer. The food was served up very promptly and was excellent. The in house ice cream/milk shakes parlour is a great idea and very reasonable.

Lovely pub, has some very nice beers! When we ate here i had the blackened cajun chicken, it was really yummy!! Very much a locals pub but everyone was really nice and highly accommodating even with a large pram during the busy tea time rush.
