We're always in here for lunch and you can't go wrong with the bar snack menu - I would recommend the chicken bites and chips!

Nicely set out pub, much improved from previous visit. Beer was good and the hot beef sandwich was excellent. Just right for a brief stop off. Will try and get in for a meal in the restaurant now I've sampled.

Large group of 22 former colleagues visit for Thursday lunch. This is our regular venue as the food, staff and room are always good. Wide range of meal choices. Fish and chips is a favourite here.

This is a traditional village pub which has a restaurant area and does very good, simple food, that is cooked fresh to order. The bar area has recently been refurbished to a high standard, and an extension has created an additional dining area which is disabled friendly.
