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.

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!

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.
