“Excellent Food in a Traditional Country Pub”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

Never been for Years but we were told to try........

The experience was excellent with friendly staff and lovely warm fire.

My Wife and I dined there and started with two delicious home made soups and then we had the Steak and Stilton pie and the Pork Tenderloin stuffed with Spinich,Apricots and Cashew Nuts with a gorgeous sauce home cooked chips and fresh veg..
We will certainly be going there again soon as there are many other intersting items on the menu and the home made puddings looked superb.

Good Beers and Wine selection too , try it and see...........

“Warm, friendly, traditional country pub”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

Must have homemade chips, Steak pie obviously homemade with proper pastry, not some frozen puff pastry lid added as an afterthought!
Duck delicious and cooked pink as ordered, with masses of fresh veg between us.

Too full for pud, but looked very good.

Lovely fire and fresh flowers, warm atmosphere.

“Lovely pub - pudding to die for!”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

We were looking for a nice place for lunch and stumbled across this pub. The fire was really nice and welcoming and we enjoyed a lovely lunch. Food was well-prepared and decently priced. The staff were very friendly - provided children's portions and patient with my toddler and his mess. Pudding was fantastic - I definitely want to come back for more crumble!

“Great food, friendly staff and wonderful log fire”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

Have eaten here a few times in the past year and enjoy the variety of food offered and the freshly prepared vegetables. A good pub with a warm welcome and friendly staff. The real fire is very welcome in this weather.
