Had an excellent dinner here. The service was friendly and quick. The gammon was excellent and the steak and ale pie very good. Good dessert choices as well.

Nearby on holiday. Booked for Sunday lunch which was excellent. Perfect meal and the pub is dog friendly. Wouldn't hesitate to go again. The only downside when on holidays that food stops at 2.30 until 6.00 which is difficult if you arrive about 3/4??
