What looks like it should be a welcoming friendly village pub is anything but. On speaking with the locals it appears the problem is one of the two landlords . We mistook this landlord for the village drunk. For most of our visit he stood at the bar drinking and verbally abused customers as the came in making all sorts... More

For the price you pay, Sunday lunch is very average. Frozen vegetables. Surely they can push the boat out and serve fresh food!

We went for a family occasion and so there were quite a few of us! I'd never been before so didn't know what to expect. The service was excellent and the staff were very nice, polite and friendly but the one thing that really made my day was the food! I had the lasagne which was amazing, full of flavour... More

The food is good and really well priced! A nice atmosphere, you can take your dog in and have a drink. Lovely owners and staff. Only reason I didn't score a 5 is because the beer is a little expensive that most pubs, but it is in a small village.

We had the roast dinner which unfortunately was clearly frozen roast potatoes. The mash was very lumpy and the gravy was gloopy and clearly heated in a microwave. Really disappointed. The staff are nice enough but it really was like the blind leading the blind. Won't be back.

Huge portions, fresh bread, freshly cooked. We thought it was very good value. It was busy being staining gala day but we managed... More

Half chicken, salad and chips for only £5.95 which was perfectly cooked not greasy and perfect chips. Home made celery soup also very generous portions and very tasty only... More
