Make sure you book in advance especially in high season. Always a good choice of traditional options along with a wider menu list. Cooked and presented to a high standard and not kept waiting. Thoroughly recommended.

The Sunday dinners are great, roast beef still pink and more than I could eat, I'm inclined to have fish and chips other times because I just love it here. Daughter has steak and husband usually has a pasta dish. It's simple, fresh & tasty.

Was surprised to find such a modern pub in a small village. The service and food were excellent. The girls who served us were very warm, friendly and professional. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Best of all they welcomed dogs with open arms.
