“Great find – Well worth a visit”

We were a group of 7 staying in a cottage close by and booked a table on the day and they managed to squeeze us in. Great welcome with roaring fire. Traditional pub with high quality modern touches. The standard menu would have been fine on its own but there were also specials making some great choices. The staff were really helpful and knowledgeable without being intrusive. We were served by Natasha and Adele who were a credit to the establishment. Great choice of well kept local ales and a good wine list. The star has to be the food. Really well cooked, great portions, tasty, locally sourced and you can see the guys making it. I’d recommend a rare burger one of the best I’ve ever had washed down with a pint of Bluebird Bitter. No frozen stuff and come starving if you want to attempt the rack of ribs. Fantastic Value We’ll be back.
