This is is the only restaurant we've visited on this trip to really take social distancing seriously. The staff wore masks or visors and insisted we sanitise on arrival, they had track and trace, not just floor markings but used cordons to restrict access and flow, and even has us lift the full drinks off the tray so that the waitress did not need to touch the glasses. Excellent measures.

Good was good, my shepherd's pie very rich and tasty, although not huge. The wife's burger was a little disappointing, with no sauce or salad in it.

Parking was tricky. I could not see the right place to park, and halfway through a mouthful was asked (presumably by a neighbour) to move my car. Some signs to indicate parking would be welcome.

Great decor and atmosphere.

Visited this place early evening for a meal during covid, good precautions and pretty well organised, the young lad who served us was polite and the food and drinks came out quickly, after a throat operation i have to be a bit careful about what i choose to eat, generally it has to be soft or with a sauce, so i ordered the slow cooked pork belly, normally i would expect soft and juicy..
It was like trying to chew my belt..not sure what they did with it in the kitchen but i struggled through about half of it and could manage no more..real shame because wifes food was as expected, reasonable portions and prices and service was good..just dont choose the belly pork unless you have steak knives for teeth..

A couple of return visits whilst staying in the village. Visited on both Saturday 8th (evening) and Sunday 16th (evening). Always feel very welcome here and always get a good meal. Pleased to see that you’re coping well with the COVID restrictions. Hope to visit once more before we head back home next week. Thank you.
