Late Sunday afternoon lunch today in the bar. Cosy with open fire and still nicely busy at 3.30pm. Friendly, prompt service, linen napkins and excellent good quality bread and butter a bonus. Duck and blackberry and celeriac; sausage, potato, poached egg and salad starters really...More

Simply wonderful overnight stay with our 3 dogs in a spacious and immaculate room. Devine food for both a coeliac and vegetarian. Great friendly staff and service. Lovely cosy bar area with open fire. Could have stayed forever!

Booked a table here as it was recommended. Had a great meal. Lovely atmosphere and staff very friendly and attentive. Great food too. Loved how the old fitted furniture was still in use. Gave it a really authentic feel.

Called in here for lunch on our way home. Craig & his team offer a fabulous menu of sumptuous food. I had the Blue Lion Platter and my better half, Blue Wensleydale & Walnut Salad. Both excellent. Highly recommended!
