We were advised by the host of our B&B who had phoned to make a booking, that this pub was excellent. Not so. We arrived for our booking at 6pm and were told there was a limited menu, being New Year Day evening. We were disappointed as we were not told that, nor was the host of our B&B. We...

This was perfect! Three open fires with a star shaped interior meant a cosy, intimate setting. Friendly welcome. Clean interior. Great ales on tap. The food was delicious - generous hearty servings. I had the stew and herbed dumplings and my husband had the trio of sausages. Two drinks each and the mains came to £36.80. Thoroughly recommend the old...

I visited on the 28th December with my Dad, my dad speaks very highly of this pub but my first impression wasn't great. I forgive the service time as it was extremely busy. Allowing dogs in the pub is fine but i don't agree with them being near your food. After waiting 30 mins for our fish and chips to...

Lunch with 5 friends, in a friendly, warm & cosy pub. Good choice of pub grub and interesting sandwiches. Great beer from the pub's own micro brewery. Top that with a lovely warm fire burning in the grate. Lovely!

The room felt a little cramped but fine for a night. Enjoyed a good night sleep, no noise from the pub below and very quiet outside as well. A comfortable bed and a few pints of the excellent beer from the pub brewery helped too! Excellent full English breakfast and very friendly and helpful host(ess).
