A delightful warm welcome from owners Michelle & Graham and all staff were genuinely friendly and attentive. The meal was the best dining experience we had received for years. Looking forward to our next visit. If you like good food this pub is a must.

Swung by here for a much needed lunch and a cup of tea after a 5 hour drive back from Wales. I would definitely recommend the Coq Au Vin, perfect portion size and massively delicious, certainly left full and satisfied.
