The location is picturesque to say the least. Beautiful setting for an impromptu date night. Friendly staff, very attentive without being imposing. The food was incredible! Good size portions with great variety on the menu! Without a doubt we will be going back.

Had an amazing stay. Warm and friendly. Couldn't do enough to make our stay very homely. Just eaten the most amazing meal ever. Featherblade of Aberdeen Angus Beef marinated in black garlic & black treacle. Melt in the mouth just amazing.

Country pub. All our food is homemade using local produce where ever possible. We have a childrens menu and welcome dogs in the bar area on a lead. Some of our rooms are dog friendly as well. Lunch and dinner reservations are recomended although not always necessary.
