I've been lucky enough to visit this pub several times in the last month after a gap of 3 years. My older memories of the pub are so good that I cannot publish them here, suffice to say I recall a dire hangover, a great bunch of regulars, copious booze and excellent food. The room I stays in was rather wonderful too.
But to the every day traveller seeking lodgings and sustenance, or for the family seeking a great place to eat, don't be put off. The pub caters for locals and visitors alike. It has bags of character around the fine bar, from a little back room, to an extensive dining room. The menu changes daily. Clearly the chef knows what he is doing because the presentation and quality of the 2 male I have enjoyed there have been great. Tasty, wholesome, adventurous and sensibly priced.
Their house red works really well, beer is good too. The front of house staff are welcoming and friendly. Garden is nice, with a smoking area under the porch at the rear for those whose vice requires.
The only thing I can fault the pub on is that there are not enough hours in the day to enjoy it more.
Well done to the owners. An absolute gem in the local and wider area, unrivalled too.
