We recently visited this lovely pub....a real hidden gem. The atmosphere was lovely and the food gorgeous. Definitely have the pie! Kathryn and Brett are very welcoming and friendly as were all the staff.

We stayed in the B and B next door for one night and eat here
On the night we arrived there was party next door and the pub was catering for it so was not serving food on that night
But the owner cooked us fish and chips which we were very greatful for
The staff are all really nice

Booking essential as Brett works on his own in the kitchen. We booked a couple of hours before going and walked the 20 steps from our room to the pub. The meals were great, the steak and stilton pie I had I thought would be too much for me to eat, it was so delicious that I ate it all, the pastry was just right, not fatty at all, much to the dismay of my husband who thought he would be finishing it off. He had the flat iron steak, which makes you think it would be a thin steak, but far from it and he throughly enjoyed his steak too. We both had a desert, banana split with homemade ginger ice cream and a baileys ice cream scoop and apple cinnamon crumble, both excellent. I only took a photo of the banana split. All in all, we thought it was excellent

Lovely welcome, great atmosphere, smashing food and good value. Couldn't fault anything. I will certainly be back when next in the area.

Booking into the B&B next door, we were recommended to ring and book a table for dinner. When we arrived, the pub was already quite busy (lots of visitors and local custom- always good) so we took our drinks and menus to sit in the garden area. We went in to order our food and sit at our allotted table. The young lady was very informative about the dishes on the menu and we were delighted to hear the ingredients were locally sourced, Our starters were delicious and we had a little rest before the main course, enjoying the banter in the busy bar area. The mains were just as exquisite as the starters, the burger was particularly tasty! Full to bursting we went back next door, very glad the pub was next door!
