This place is really amazing. We went for my birthday on a Saturday evening. It is busy but atmospheric and really unrushed.

The food was first class - and virtually everything on the menu was under £10. Their stuffed chicken breasts are delicious. And a superb selection of starters and deserts too - if you have room !!

It's a pub but with a separate restaurant area. There was a good selection of local ales and other drinks.

All in all a superb evening - truly. We're going back this Saturday when down visiting my in laws !!! An absolute gem.

I'd say booking essential by the way.

Came across this pub by accident and originally missed the turning to the car park so we turned round on the off chance that we would try it for lunch.
What a surprise, home cooked food and such a choice on the menu at a very reasonable price. Everything from stuffed chicken wrapped in panchetta with a creamy cajun spice to warm pigeon salad with black pudding as well as the normal pies and grills. All served with lovely selection of fresh vegetables and salad or potatoes.
Very friendly service. and clean and tidy.
