          I think we were the only customers at lunchtime in this great little pub so it was lacking a little atmosphere. Shame because it's in a great location But we had good drinks, excellent soup with very good service. Exceptional toilets!

          I had heard that the cooking was good in this pub since the new owners had renovated the building and I was not disappointed - fresh sensitive redecoration, a very warm welcome, smart attentive service and good quality cooking. Well worth a visit.

          What a fantastic traditional pub, 16th century and loads of character. As someone has previously mentioned it has now changed hands and the owners were extremely welcoming, staff very friendly. We will definitely be returning soon.
