As a couple we both run different pubs so are very critical. WOW, this is a lovely pub. I went to the ladies and came out for once praising the toilets. They were clean, well equipped for ladies (think you’ll know what I’m talking about)...and all in all nice. Natalie (think that’s her name) was so friendly, didn’t seem forced at all which is refreshing. The locals were welcoming and in a rural pub like the red lion you don’t always get that. We had our dog Merlot with us and she settled quickly which isn’t like her. All in all, it’s a pub, I wish was my local.More

We visited here when visiting over the weekend, the staff were really welcoming and friendly and ensured we had a relaxed and enjoyable time here. The food was also perfect. We came with our puppy and the pub was well catered for dogs! We’d definitely...recommend and love to come again!More

Tend to drink here rather than eat being local. A small 'backwater' pub but beautiful surroundings and good selection of beers and wines for such a small place. Attracts a lot of walkers and caravanners..good pub food... always good company often with ponies tethered outside.

Edit Post My daughter and I ate here last night. Staff were friendly and food was delicious and excellent value for money. Much needed after a full day at the wildlife park. What I loved was that my daughter's rather obscure request for dragon icecream...was granted by the lovely chap. Yes it was a bit of luck dragon character was in the freezer but he took the time tp look for it. It made her night. We shall be back if ever over these parts.More
