We went for a pint at lunchtime, then went walking along the river (which is literally at the end of the pub garden!) with our dog for a few hours which was absolutely beautiful! We then walked back to the pub for a 3 course dinner which was incredible. I'd... More

We hadn't thought about where we would eat that evening so we're delighted that there was a table available. The staff at the pub gave us a very warm welcome on our arrival.... More
