Walking up and down the main restaurant area and not knowing much about the best place to eat, my mum and I took the chance to eat here and we were not disappointed. Reasonably priced, good menu, really tasty food and the husband and wife team were fantastic, welcoming, helpful, they rounded out a great eating experience. Had my first local cider here too. A must visit if looking for something different than the pub atmosphere for dinner.

We returned to this little restaurant after a long break due to illness and were delighted to recognise the married couple who still ran the place. To our surprise, they remembered us and were able to spare a few minutes for an update chat. The place continues to be one of quiet, good, cheerful service with an excellant menu. We were pleased that "with vegetables" was not just carrots and peas but a selection of other veggies also. The steak and kidney pie deserves very special mention as it surpasses any other we have had. It was my 76th birthday and I was treated with a "drink on the house". This sort of thing is really a big plus for us and, yes, it encourages to use this place more often - we hope to return again shortly!

Nice food with a fairly diverse selection on the menu. My lamb shank was a little fatty for my liking, but the vegetarian option was very good.
