Love this place. Beautiful pub. Excellent food, we had the burger and sticky toffee pudding. Friendly and attentive staff. Well worth a visit but definitely book if you want to eat. Rightly so the restaurant gets full!

Called in at short notice for a meal, very welcoming staff and environment. Good draught beers on offer and a good menu. Our beef pies were absolutely gorgeous with a nice accompaniment of mash and veg. Reasonably priced food, well prepared and presented.

This was our first visit to this pub and we were not disappointed. They were able to offer a range of starters and main courses that were gluten free. The starter (in the photo) was amazing. So many different tastes and textures. I then had...More
