This place has everything - beautiful old building full of atmosphere, excellent menu and the food.......well, simply the best. Had a fantastic dinner and spent a very comfortable night here - even met the Head Chef, what a lovely chap!!! I can't recommend it highly enough - all I can say is that I wish I was a 'local'!!

Thank Steve T

Went here with friends in December and had the Pork belly roast which was amazing. Crispy crackling and crispy roast potatoes. And you have to try the chocolate brownie! Was so good came back in January to have the same again. Staff really friendly as well. Lovely pub in lovely location.

With my mother just moved into the village, we decided to try out her nearest eating establishment and werent disappointed. good food, friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. The pub often holds events and has some live music so you may need to pick your time to eat quietly but I can recommend the traditional pub fayre when you do.

The atmosphere when we entered was really Christmassy, the aroma of a cider punch and the warm glow of the wood burner -all very welcoming. We both decided that starters and puds would be just right, my daughter chose a homemade artichoke soup with warm homemade bread and i had pan fried pigeon breast with rocket salad. Then the chocolate... More
