Ate here for the first time last night. The whole experience was fantastic, the greeting we received and the service was second to none and the food, well it was absolutely gorgeous. This is a beautiful, very relaxed atmospheric little gem.

Early evening visit. Real ale available which was well kept. We had venison and lamb cooked two ways. Both were well cooked and served on a timely basis. Good choice of meals on their blackboard. Great meal and thoroughly recommend. Will try and visit again!
