Very nice pub. Nice comfy chairs to sit in. We ordered from the pub rather than restaurant as we were very comfortable. Good food and service

We couldn’t get into the Trout as we hadn’t thought to book, so found that this was nearby. We were wanting a late traditional Sunday lunch around 4pm. Our welcome in the dining room wasn’t very warm as they pondered whether they could fit us...More

My second trip of the year for this place, again for breakfast. And it's as dismal as it was before if you take into account the image it projects of high quality food and the price to match. I had veggie breakfast replacing the veggie...More

We just turned up at about 7 pm and were able to sit outside without too much of a problem. You can call ahead but they only book the tables inside (I think). Amazing food, you will love it.
