Firstly, we have eaten here quite a few times before, and the food standard has always been good, hence our repeated trips. It was fine this time, as well. However, having noted the steak & ale pie now comes with mash rather than chips, when ordering I enquired if I it would be possible to have chips anyway instead. The... More

Decided to go here half way through an epic hike out on a cold day. Reviews looked great and we had all worked up an amazing appetite. Mistake. No children allowed. Was a disaster. Tears and tantrums. The kids too. Seriously, if you have kids, don't even bother. We ended up going to the local Post Office and shop. Lovely... More

The pub is dog friendly with free treats and the staff were very friendly and chatty. Had a nice lunch in... More

We had a very nice meal and staff were very friendly. We both went for dinner and enjoyed it so much the first evening that we went back the following evening too. Highly recommend it.

Very nice dog friendly inn - perfect stop-off for walkers/cyclists at lunch or for a larger meal. We were on sandwiches/ploughman's/soup all of which were very good and the beer was enjoyed too! Larger meals which came to nearby tables also looked very good. Lots of history and atmosphere! Would love to return

I met up with a friend for dinner here one evening in the summer and had a great time. The landlady was very welcoming and friendly, the locals were good for a chat, and the food was excellent. We started off with a delicious homemade soup, then had lamb rump (my friend) and pork belly (myself) both of which were... More
