Great place to eat. Have been here several times with family and friends. Always accommodating and friendly. Good choice of food and beer. Sunday roast is fab. Lovely garden to sit in and nice restaurant indoors. Never had a bad meal. Deserts are the best.

Huge, dinging pub with a massive outdoor area to the front. Pleasant, attentive and helpful staff and a very varied menu. Food was excellent, I particularly enjoyed the Stilton and broccoli soup. Wi-fi available through your facebook account so make sure you know your password!
