Cod was nice but small inside lots of batter. Everone's chips were dry bland and tasteless. Just after arriving I told the waitress that both... More

Had lunch here today with family and friends and felt compelled to write feedback as the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming as well as lovely food. They're even pet friendly which is rare these days. The staff noticed that we had our dogs with us and bought out fresh water for them and a bowl of chopped ham each,... More

When David & I took over this lovely Inn we discussed the fact that not many pubs (back then) allowed dogs in, 12 years on and sadly still some places don't allow them. We've always welcomed dogs (and their owners) with a bowl of water, a doggie treat and ham and... More

Loved this place. OK we were lucky that it was a lovely evening, but the views from the restaurant are beautiful. After mentioning when booking that we had 2 kids, the table was already set with colouring place mats and pencils when we arrived. Lovely food and a really friendly team.
