We were a party of twelve (including children) and booked in advance for a Sunday lunchtime meal. From entering the pub to leaving we had excellent service throughout our visit. We all thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday roast. Meat was plentiful and tender, an abundance of veg and what must be the best gravy ever. We all agreed that the sticky... More

Proper pub with log fires and real ale. A large food menu but didn;t partake as we were eating at the hotel. Staff and locals are very friendly.

I was staying locally in a cottage on local farm and visited on a Thursday night for dinner with my young family. The farmer recommended this place for a decent meal and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, the portions were great and generally although the pub was remarkably quiet, the service was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Wouldn't... More

Visited for my dad's birthday. Not our first time here and won't be our last. All the staff are lovely and the pub is always warm and friendly with a great country pub atmosphere. Fantastic black pudding and deep fried egg starter, perfect steaks and incredible desserts. You can't go wrong with the jolly farmers!

Had dinner here last week and the Steak and Kidney Pie was to die for! Really tasty and tender and melt in the mouth puff pastry, so often pastry is a damp squib as lots of places do not cook it through. The Yorkshire Rhubarb cheesecake was very tasty, although the rhubarb was maybe a little woody for my personal... More
