Didn't need to book, warm welcome and attentive service from very friendly staff. Waitress double checked that our food choice was gluten free. Portions were huge and the food was fresh and very tasty, so much so that we've booked a table for tomorrow evening.

Only pub in the village so you will need to book on weekends and busy seasons. The staff were very helpful and service was good. A good menu choice, the meals we had on the three evenings we were there were very good. Not too expensive and good beer!
