Had another really nice meal here last night. Haddock & chips & bean burger. I had the fish, which was perfect. So much better than chip shop stuff. Really good quality decent sized fish. Great service and great beer too!

We were fitted in with no reservation, despite it being a busy evening with lots of tables booked. A good menu and we found our meals to be really tasty. Good service, nice looking pub in a pretty village.

Sometimes they get really busy and you just need to book. It does not hurt just to make one phone call.
