We went to the pub for my dad's birthday. There was a group of 10 of us. The food was great and service excellent. Lovely ambience in the restaurant and in the bar area. Lovely open fire - even if a bit warm.

Visited this establishment on a number of occasions for food and entertainment. Great service and clean restaurant & bar. Reasonably priced and the surroundings are second to none.

I wish I had found this hidden gem before now! The food was fantastic, the staff were wonderful and the settings were idyllic. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed the night, and the accommodation is beautiful and immaculate. I can't wait to visit again. I highly recommend a visit...you won't be disappointed!
