Had a beautifully prepared and presented Easter Sunday dinner with friends. Food was tasty and plentiful - the coup de grace was the desert!

The Best Sunday Dinner I have ever had, an absolute must to visit. Great Atmosphere and fantastic value for money. Lisa and Gordon who own this lovely pub, are very welcoming and make it a definite venue to visit and spend time in. Gorgeous wine and superb beer.
