Overview

If you prefer something quicker or more informal our bar has a great atmosphere with wooden beams and log fires in the winter. Our beautiful new orangery links the garden with the bar, which adds an alternative area for customers to enjoy a drink or snack. Extensive bar snacks ranging from sandwiches to hot dishes and home-made "pub-grub" including great burgers made with 100% prime British beef. Terrific range of drinks, including two real ales, wide selection of lagers and at least ten wines available by the glass.

Average food, grumpy staff and uncomfortable chairs. Not much selection foodwise (unhappy veggie friends). Shame as nice setting with sunny garden. Has potential to be good just let down by people who run it.More
