Reviewed 17 December 2016 via mobile

Restaurant very small and was crowded due to large xmas partys and the poor waitresses were rushed off their feet with them so at times felt we were ignored a bit and had to keep getting their attention. However food was excellent. Steak and gammon highly recommended. Nice choice of 3 types of chips, biggest onion rings I've ever seen. Good choice of desserts only let down by cheap basic ice cream. Would come again.

We came across this inn while we were looking for a pub for dinner. The staff were pleasant and although the place was busy, our meals were served within a reasonable lapse of time. The food, though not gastronic, was good and the portions were ample. This is an address worth keeping.

We booked via the telephone on the morning of our stay. We were travelling between Cambridge and Birmingham & needed somewhere inexpensive for one night. We found this thru "AirB&B", although the owner no longer uses that. We used GPS to find this place, but it's right on the main road, so very easy to find. Plenty of car parking. The rooms are in a separate building to the pub/restaurant. Could potentially be noisy in the summer as the pub garden is immediately outside. Room big, clean, well lit, small wall mounted TV, kettle, tea/coffee, plenty of storage and beautifully warm (it was freezing outside). Large bathroom with bath & shower, heated towel rail as well as wall heater. Body wash, shower caps, soap, body lotion. Lovely clean and soft towels. We ate in the restaurant. Large portions & quick, attentive service, but the restaurant was quiet, so no reason why it shouldn't have been so. Slept very well. Very comfortable bed. Good size breakfast. Would definitely stay again and recommend. Good value.

We had our lunch here today, 4 adults and one year old. Value lunch time menu of 2 courses for £9.95. 3 courses just a little extra. Good choices and all our meals are excellent. The freshly cooked bread with olives and oil/balsamic vinegar was particularly good. The full menu gave lots of choices and would like to return in the future fir an evening meal. Would definitely recommend.
