Lovely meal, we had the Sunday lunch, beef for me and Lamb for my husband, both beautifully cooked and reasonably priced. Pleasant staff and lovely decor, the roaring fire in the bar was welcoming especially as it was a very cold day.

Excellent food, polite and helpful staff, warm, cosy and lively pub. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Roaring open fire was the icing on the cake on a cold and dreary night.
