Stumbled across the inglenook a few days ago. Everything and more you'd expect from a traditional English pub. Staff and owner went above and beyond! Will return.

Didnt bother with dinner. Drinks were OK but service shockingly slow despite only 10 customers. Sat in garden which was tired and needed a good weed. Lots of nice comfy seating though.
