Lovely lunch.Pork fillet was delicious and choice of beers good. Looked like interesting wine options too. Atmosphere good, with no background music, just background burble of conversation. Just like pubs used to be, except the food is MUCH better.

Always great beer and a Sunday lunch that is guaranteed to satisfy anybody lucky enough to try one. Always a good atmosphere and a woodburner that will warm you through.

I’ve never been here before, but will certainly be back. Dating back to 1086, with a large part of it from the 1700’s, the pub was charming. Staff were friendly, and the lunch excellent.

Excellent food and cosy atmosphere. The place is remote, be prepared to walk a few yards from where you have parked your car.
