This was a great few days. We booked late and nothing else was available so had to stay here. Slightly apprehensive about what it would be like but how wrong can you be! Excellent welcome and service and a great room. Food was first class...More

Good dining pub offering reasonable choices at decent prices. Only a few places of quality to eat nearby and this is as good as others.

It's ok. It feels a bit like a chain restaurant. The staff are polite and helpful but not particularly passionate about the food or ingredients. They've found a formula that works and the people keep coming.
