We have visited the spread a few times and tonight was no exception. Wonderful staff, meal and atmosphere. A particular highlight was the scallop starter with choritzo and peas - perfection. Staff brilliant and accommodating. Thanks for a great night.

A lovely visit to a pub in a fabulous setting. Great food and great staff. The most helpful, funny waiter/barman made our visit. We will be back, with our dogs.
