My husband and I went there last night for dinner. Great food with a clear italian touch from the chef/owner Matteo. Really nice and friendly staff, great home made beer selection. We highly recommend the blue cheese and pear bruschetta and the apple crumble!

Eight of us including 4 children (ages 3 to 7) dropped in for an evening meal on a Sunday night. We were staying at the campsite up the road and couldn't be bothered to spark up the BBQ. Friendly welcome, good food, good beer!

Good honest pub. Traditional feel. Great landlord. Hearty, honest food and good ales brewed on site. Not fancy or Michelin stars but just down to earth. Well worth a visit.

Fantastic food, lovely fresh local produce. Friendly staff. I am Coeliac and the Chef prepared a fabulous meal. Including onion rings in a GF batter, made my holiday. Would highly recommend.

Hi, Yes, we allow dogs in our tap room which is the first room you come into when you enter the pub. We serve food in this area, but generally do not take bookings for the tap room. Hope this helps.
