Arrived quite late on Sunday lunchtime. Good welcome, fire, tables beer and food .......whats not to like! The buiding was quite interesting. Usual selection of beers with odd names. Standard pub food but served with a genuine smile and tasty. We could have eaten from the Christmas menu but didn't. Would happily go again.

We came here for a family meal a few weeks back after hearing good things. The pub was clearly popular and already lively when we turned up and although the new owners were busy they found us a quieter spot. Food was prompt and tasty. As a previous reviewer pointed out, the food is standard fare rather than gastro, but as a family of vegetarians we all had different meals which represents quite a lot of choice in my experience!
Can definitely recommend a warm welcome here.

This pub has recently changed hands so decided to look at reviews on trip advisor before booking.
Reviews seemed to be very good so we booked and took some friends with us. We were quite disappointed, the menu was very basic and limited on choice and although we ate our main courses our vegetables were cold and undercooked. The staff were very friendly but not much in attendance. I must admit that it was very reasonable on price but overall would say that it would be best suited to a lunchtime snack rather than an evening meal.
( pub grub not a restaurant meal )

Sue and (super) Tony are the lovely landlady and landlord of this fab pub. Enjoyed a super Ploughmans at lunchtime today. Can't wait to go back......skittle alley out the back :) Some big plans ahead for them, looking forward to seeing them completed. Recommend it highly.

Sue & Tony have recently taken over the pub and have already got a fantastic atmosphere there. They are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
