The outside of this pub does not do it justice. The inside is cosy with a lovely inglenook fireplace. The food being served looked and was really good food and definitely the best mix cheese ploughman's we've ever seen!

Seven of us plus a dog dropped in without booking a table, we were given a very friendly welcome and the landlord soon sorted us a table. This pub offers a good variety of pub food at very good value for money and a good size portion. The real ale too was excellent. Would recommend if you happen to be... More

Stopped here for Lunch today. Good choices and reasonably priced. My Wife had a ploughmans lunch and it was the biggest one we've been served. Scampi was also freshly cooked. Friendly staff and lovely surroundings. The outside appearance doesn't do it justice.

The first impression when walking in was of a lovely bright bar with real ale from the barrel which I very much approve of.

Came here as I was let down by the next pub along and had a fantastic meal. Spoke to the new owner Richard and his father Allen, they only moved in a couple of months ago, and have done a great job putting things right. Great food and a lovely family atmosphere, they even had fresh flowers on the tables.
