Well above average pub dining with an interesting selection of largely 'local' dishes (although we were a bit nonplussed to be offered some exotic whitebait).
Presentation of the food leaned towards 'nouvelle cuisine' (as opposed to traditional 'English') and none of the dishes disappointed.
Our wine was not of an equal standard to the food and the list was more typical of an English pub, similarly the dining room was sparsely furnished and seemed little more than an extension of the bar area. Arguably providing more 'authenticity to its providing 'pub dining'. Overall well worth a visit but perhaps try a local beer with the food.

We went here with friends so were a group of 6. The front of the Inn is a very small pub area, so if you want to go there to drink you will find that it is a bit of a thoroughfare. The back restaurant area is an extension, and while quite nice doesn't have much character. They have added some character by having the kitchen open - makes it a bit interesting but we did have to have a word with the chef as his two assistants were both absent-mindedly licking their fingers as they plated up the food.....

As for the food, I had fish and chips which was ok - the batter was rather hard but flavourful. The chips were over-cooked and rather solid, and the minted pea puree had so much mint in it that I could only have a couple of mouthfuls.

Other meals were a risotto, lemon sole and halloumi. These were again all ok, but the halloumi was very salty, which meant the person eating it had had enough by the time she was half way through.

Warm friendly welcome at this pub come restaurant in the countryside. All starters are one price as are all mains which seems to make mussels seem good value versus soup. Mains are pricey at £16 but are of reasonable quality

Went here with friends recently, our first time although friends had been there before. Greeted by warm and friendly staff and nothing was too much trouble.

As for the food......the title says it all, everything was perfectly cooked and presented. One of the best non Michelin starred meals I've had.

YUMMY!!!
