Wanted to stop by so many times but finally did last weekend and glad we did. Popped in on the off-chance and they managed to squeeze us in. Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, fabulous food, we will be returning but will pre-book next time.

Love this place. Beautiful pub. Excellent food, we had the burger and sticky toffee pudding. Friendly and attentive staff. Well worth a visit but definitely book if you want to eat. Rightly so the restaurant gets full!

Called in at short notice for a meal, very welcoming staff and environment. Good draught beers on offer and a good menu. Our beef pies were absolutely gorgeous with a nice accompaniment of mash and veg. Reasonably priced food, well prepared and presented.
