A group of 20 walkers stopped here for a mid week pub lunch and all enjoyed an excellent meal. We'd prebooked our meals and it was served quite quickly, the portions a good size, the food excellent and staff friendly and helpful.

We had a decent meal which was reasonably priced and portions were very good along with the puddings. It's a nice pub without doubt and one that is certainly worth a go.

For a great lunch time meal, where one can relax and feel at home, this is the place to visit.
Every one is pleasent and always ready to help and the food is just the best!
Happy to accept Walkers with not the cleanest of boots, just pleased to welcome you.
This is so nice as some Public Houses 'do look down at a walker in more ways than one'
Will always go here for lunch when walking in the area, many thanks.

Hired the skittle alley adjoining the pub. Owners very pleasant and booking easy. Choice of hot/cold menu. We went for cold salad buffet at £9 a head - fantastic value and excellent selection. Refurbishment has taken place in the bar area, a lot brighter and skittle alley spruced up. Great for a private function. Despite heaters, hall still on the chilly side - take a jumper.

This is a delightful pub - a real gem. The young couple who run the place have got it just right. The food is good, hot and reasonable with roasts on Sunday and a more varied menu midweek. Unlike some village pubs it isnt 'cliquey' and even though we are not locals have always found a friendly atmosphere, which is why we travel quite a distance to eat there. Nice log fire as well.
