If you go about 4-5pm on a Sunday you can choose either Sunday lunch or normal menu. I don't like Sunday lunches my family think this is one of the best they have had. Nice inside apart from toilets could do with some refreshing!

This place is a little out the way but totally worth it. The food is always fantastic, I've been a number of times and never had a bad meal. Family friendly and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The manager in particular was very understanding when a member of our party was late to arrive. I would highly recommend...

We called for a Saturday lunch and by gum we were not disappointed. It was beautiful. A real friendly inn with lots of cyclists and visitors as we were. We will be returning soon someone recommended the steak pie for our next visit.
