Friendly staff, nice atmosphere and ale, food was a good standard and well presented, goats cheese was slightly overcooked and parsnips in the roast were undercooked. Would return for food very reasonably priced.

Incredibly atmospheric little pub in a magical setting. Worth the drive to get here. Had the salmon which was cooked to perfection and husband had lamb 'Henry'- we didn't get to the bottom of why it's called Henry but that didn't detract from the taste...More
