Quiet village pub warm and friendly great place to while away an evening. The food is excellent and well worth a detour.

Visited on a Friday evening, the staff were attentive and very welcoming. The food was very good value for money. My husband and I enjoyed the home battered fish and chips... both having no complaints. All in all a nice cosy village pub.. we will return next time we are in the area.

We visited on a Saturday lunchtime and on arrival there is a large car park in need of a little repair. The building is quaint with open fire place and low beams in places. We ordered from the main menu and being a party of 8, were happy that all food arrived at the same time. The quality of the... More

Second visit. Both times a very long wait, over 40 minutes. First visit food was nice but beef goulash on second visit was awful, small portion for money and was made with packet peppercorn sauce served it mushrooms and tough fatty beef. Staff were friendly, shame because it could be really nice with a bit more effort.

So sorry to hear of your poor experience, which is clearly not up to the standards we set ourselves and that you expect. I am reviewing our menu and will certainly look at portion size and quality of ingredients. Thank you for taking the time to pass on your feedback. More

Came across this place during a Sunday walk. Spacious, friendly, good atmosphere. Our burgers took getting on for 30mins to arrive - they had 2 tables just ahead of us and we weren't in any rash so I'll let them off ! Very tasty, good value. Would visit again.
