Another good meal at this lovely pub/restaurant. My only reason for not giving it full marks is because most meals came with chips or mash. Plus there was no salad as a main meal. However, our party all enjoyed their experience.

For a good meal... More

A great find for a traditional pub lunch. Perfect if you want a good selection of well cooked classic pub. Good children's menu as well.

I stopped here as I was passing... And booked in for an early evening meal. What a great choice. The bar man was very friendly and so was chef. (I bumped into her in the car park as I arrived) I had Guiness & steak pie, with fresh vegetables & new potatoes. It was great, especially after my fiasco at... More

Excellent food, and a genuine, warm, relaxed welcome. 3 couples arriving with 7 kids could have been made to feel like an inconvenience (one of the other nearby pubs had made it clear that we were), but not the case here. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was perfect for the rabble and adults alike. Will definitely be... More

Went to visit Scotney castle and couldn't get in so the guy at the castle recommend this pub for a lunch time snack. We were not disappointed. There was a nice log stove and the pub was warm. Food was good value for money. Would have loved the OAP two course meal for £8.75? but didn't qualify! Porton size was... More

Went here after a night orienteering event nearby with 12 + friends. Very hospitable, a good choice of main dishes and nicely cooked with good portions. What is not to like!
