This is a good and typical country pub with an excellent choice of real ales. Bar snacks at lunchtime were good and tasty, and satisfying for a group of hungry walkers.

Hi, we do have one area of the pub in the bar for dining where we allow dogs. We advise you call ahead to reserve a table in this area as we only have 2 tables, one seats 2 and the other seats 6. Thanks for getting in touch.
