Good prompt friendly service. Food was good value for money and well presented. Drinks were sensibly priced. Pleasant relaxed atmosphere. A really good evening with our family. Have placed it on our list of places to visit.

We ordered belly pork, chicken and the pie from the Spring Menu. All were delicious and beautifully presented. We followed our mains with ginger pudding and two treacle tarts. Again all delicious and deceny portion sizes. More than pub grub and well worth a visit.

The food is good and the interior pub is well done. The food is good but isn't quite amazing for me but the food is just simple pub food.
