Found this by chance, nice lunch. Not sure about the ladies loo being labeled 'Dragons', ha ha! (The boys are 'Georges') All the food is locally sourced and our meals were delicious; Double baked soufflé, crab pot and a risotto.

Excellent food with limited but imaginative vegetarian dishes. The pub is upmarket traditional. Good craft beers. The service is friendly and efficient. I'd go back right now if I wasn't too full.
