Visited as a family , 5 adults and one 5 year old, for a Birthday celebration Sunday lunch a few weeks ago.
The exterior is clean pleasant and welcoming - how you would expect a country pub to look , with a charming flower garden and white picket fence! There is a side car park and also on road parking to the front of the pub alongside the village green.
The bar area is well served with tables and seating , and appeared clean, with no sticky tables or empty glasses on the tables. We were acknowledged immediately and served with pre- meal drinks , awaiting our tablet at one of the lounge tables, which gave us the opportunity to look through the menus.
Although the pub was quite busy - we had booked in advance and booking a table is advisable - the staff were very attentive and we were not rushed through to our table in the dining room behind the bar, there is a second dining area beyond this and bar food is also available . The dining area is pleasant with comfortable dining chairs and pleasant light decor.
We were given plenty of time to choose our meal preferences, and wine , and service was friendly and knowledgeable. The usual meat and veg Sunday Lunch choices were on offer as was a fish option and vegetarian option, a child's portion was also offered and staff were very accommodating with our 5 year olds choice of bread and butter for starters instead of any other options.
The wine list was a pleasant surprise offering various options and some special more expensive vintages.
Food when it arrived was plentiful and tasty with condiments and extra sauces offered , and all made for an excellent tasty sunday lunch, all plates were cleared , and some of us were sadly too full for pudding but pudding options did appear very tempting!
Nothing was too much trouble for the pleasant manager and staff which all helped to make it a lovely and relaxing lunchtime event.
We will return again - possibly to try an evening meal , or an afternoon cream tea which we note was offered !!
