“So good we went twice”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We had been recommended this place as somewhere new to try and we are so please we did. The pub itself is in a small village but had plenty of parking (good thing as we had a 20min drive to find the place). The food was amazing not your normal pub grub of burgers etc, but be warned you need to go with an empty stomach as the portion sizes are big!!!! The menu seems to get changed which is a good thing as it means you can never get bored of the same thing.
The meal we had was so good we went back for Sunday lunch (def worth trying and at under £10 well worth it) There were 4 different meats on the day we went and the chef was happy for you to mix and match as it was a cavery it meant you could have what veg you liked and leave what you didn't. Just make sure you leave enough room for pudding!!!
Will def be going back when I'm up that way

“Friendly Welcome, Very Accommodating”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Myself and quite a few members of my family stayed here as part of a wedding party at a nearby venue. The staff here were so accommodating from the very first moment to the last. They took great care of everyone and made us all feel so welcome.

They managed to organise a very large party to eat at what turned out to be short notice of less than a few hours when many of the other guest staying at other venues came for a pre-wedding meal. There was no fuss, no bother and excellent service.

The food was fantastic, the rooms clean, tidy and comfortable, and the prices were more than reasonable.

Whether you are looking for somewhere to stay or lovely meal out, you could do a lot worse than this place!

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

This old hotel/restaurant/pub has a wonderful charm. It's a listed building with a small but atmospheric restaurant. The welcome is warm, the food superb and the service is friendly. Prices are very competitive. We have been several times for Sunday lunch and there is always an excellent selection. Midweek the selection is smaller but still excellent quality.
