The only point I would make make is that I thought it rather a cheek to charge £1.50 for extra gravy ! That seem a bit grasping and somehow slightly spoiled the otherwise enjoyment. Everything else was generously portioned, and so it seemed a bit daft to ration the gravy just for the sake of £1.50. However , the food was delicious.

Excellent food served in a pleasant dining area adjacent to main bar. The menu is limited but enough for all dietary requirements/preferences. All the dishes we chose were perfectly cooked and well presented. It is not cheap but reasonably priced for the quality and quantity. Probably the best pub food as opposed to high end dining we’ve had for a while. We will definitely return in the future. Well done!

This pub is welcoming. It is both a pub for people drop into fo a drink as well as providing an excellent lunch or dinner. The menu is short which is good because it is very well thought out and the ingredients fresh and local. The cooking itself is inspired. Vicky and her team are great front of house and the pub itself is very comfortable and appealing. Winter with a fire or summer with its enclosed safe garden.

The best place to eat for miles around. The menu is built around seasonal local food and the results hero this to the max. Subtle interplay of flavours in beautifully presented dishes and a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. We will be back.
