I was quite disappointed to put it nicely. £12 for 3 anaemic sausages and a bit of mash. The rarebit was also tiny and around £5 if I remember correctly. Sorry guys but I won't be returning any time soon :-(

New owners, but the standard of food remains excellent. The menu caters for meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans. The chef was really helpful when I explained I had a dairy intolerance and suggested options which I could eat. We will return.

I hadn't been to this lovely country pub for about 12 years, and so it was refreshing to visit again recently. The owners had changed but the atmosphere is still good, and the pub looked much cleaner over all. The food was great too and...More
