Great service from the two ladies unfortunately serving terrible food. This restaurant is cold, with no atmosphere and food reminiscent of a 1980's menu. The steak was grey and tasteless, with the majority of it being of gristle, served on a cold plate with cool...More

Traditional pub food, unfortunately almost tasteless and very oily and heavy. Staff is very friendly though and the room is cosy and homely.

The setting was great, the staff friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately we were here two days before this pub changed hands, so the food choices were limited, but what was served was good.

There are tables by the main road but you are a bit exposed. Otherwise there is a garden round the side of the pub on the side road. And there are one or two benches in front of the entrance to the pub.

A traditional family run country pub serving home cooked food and a selection of real ales, beers, wines and spirits. Booking are recommended during the busy summer season. Sorry but we are unable to allow dogs inside the pub however, dogs are very welcome in the beer garden.
