Superb as always. My guest had travelled 100 miles just to have lunch there as he’d liked it so much before.

This is our favourite place to eat but unfortunately there was a large very noisy table near us this time so we were unable to have a normal conversation between us. Never experienced this before and it won’t stop us returning but on this occasion it spoilt it for us on our wedding anniversary lunch. That’s the only reason atmosphere has been marked down.

Excellent meals and service. Only slight downside was sitting at table with backs so close to Blackboard menu. Person sitting there felt uncomfortable when people were viewing the menu.

Website easy to use. Food and service as always excellent with a good and varied menu. This is our little treat. Being a village pub, parking is limited

What a fantastic place to eat. It was my first visit. The only concern I personally had was the resident cat making a bed on the seats as I’m very allergic. I didn’t have a problem though on this occasion!

We were celebrating a birthday. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals but felt the starters were a little pricy. We would have appreciated a little gap between courses; our mains came out immediately we had finished our starters. Service otherwise was excellent; friendly and efficient. Thank you!
