Revisited this fine establishment due to an engagement in the area. The welcome was as good as ever. The food was wonderful and the room was great. It is always interesting to return to a place that was very good on previous occasions. It is a little unsettling to find continuous improvement. A great family run enterprise which I heartily...

We visited on a Thursday with some friends up from Cornwall. The greeting was really nice and the food was superb, great home cooked food of the highest quality. We only live in the next village and have never been, but you can be sure we will be back again and again. Thank you.

Visited today for Sunday Lunch. After having driven past on a number of occasions was pleased on calling today to be able to reserve a table. Easy car parking available. Friendly welcome on arrival and after receiving drinks quickly was showed to a cosy table in a cheerful dining area. Had a family feel and staff were polite and friendly....

We were looking for somewhere to stay while we visited a local event. Found this and I'm glad we did. The food was excellent, the people lovely and it's difficult to think of a way it could be nicer. The local advice on how to make use of a spare day was good and much appreciated.

Spent a couple of midweek nights here while on a business trip in the area. Spotless comfortable room and very friendly welcome. Good food and fine ales. Cracking breakfast. Plenty of local people in for a drink, to eat, or other pub games. Recommended.
