What a perfect find! Hot. heatwave weather, cool welcoming pub. Ice cold drink and a tasty sandwich served with attentiveness and a smile. Simple, sustaining food followed by a yummy desert. Coffee, just right! Thank you. Perfect respite for a hot, sunny lunchtime!

Had a lovely lunch, food was great and the staff are very friendly. This is a lovely pub with a very well kept garden and relaxed atmosphere. We would highly recommend everything. We will certainly go back again.

Our lunch was fine but dining area was cold out food was hot and plentiful. The dining area is not very big a little cramped. We had to wait a while for our food as there was only one staff serving, she was very pleasant.

Eat here a lot. Always great food and helpful staff. Sunday lunch is VERY popular so you will need to book. Mid week is also great - nice atmosphere and Tony and Rick are very entertaining.
