This beautiful village pub, very quaint and 0ld worlde has a tasty and well balanced menu, something for everyone. The garden is outstanding since the new patio with pontoon lighting for the evening. Staff are friendly and attentive I would recommend it to anyone.

Amazing food every time we’ve been. Friendly staff. Community feel. So pleased this is our local! Prices are higher than average, but appropriate for the area! Great on all weathers!

A superb meal. My daughter is on a no carb diet and asked for a plain burger with no bun or fries. This was beautifully presented with a really lovely salad. I had the duck from the menu and it was absolutely gorgeous.
