Beautiful country pub with an excellent selection of food and drinks. The goats cheese starter is a must! All portions are very generous so you will not go home hungry! The Chef and waiting staff are a credit to the new owners who themselves are also doing a fantastic job! Great hospitality from all. 10/10. Spot on!
