We had an excellent meal in pleasant surroundings, and enjoyed excellent service. The beer was also spot on. I would recommend the Woolly Sheep for a well priced, good quality meal.
Great Sunday lunch - good choice of roasts, nicely cooked veg topped off with a big Yorkshire. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
2nd visit in two weeks and delicious both times. Maybe a little heavy handed on salt added to mash but not enough to complain. Lovely inn full of character, very busy need to book.
