    We stayed for a few days a Easter and fortunately picked the good weather. The pub is excellent, very clean and we'll decorated, very cosy. The staff are very helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble (I know it's a cliché, but true)....More

    We are supper here for 6 on the 23rd and 26th March 2017. Highly recommended, excellent food, great service with a warm atmosphere and friendly staff. The food is imaginative, with local produce and a healthy twist. The landlord has a fun sense of humour.

    Yes, they do a children's menu. We went on a Saturday and my grandson aged 10 and granddaughter aged 6 both had steak and chips which were really big portions. I am sure they would do a children's Sunday roast.
