Lovely beer, cosy pub, nice fires. Welcomes walkers. Pies in packets provided a much needed scran. Hens came to say hello whilst we enjoyed the beer garden

Went here one evening for a couple of hours with family. Had a lovely time playing board billiards and chatting to the owner. A lovely, traditional pub!

When you enter the Quiet Woman, you step back in time, it's a real traditional pub. The landlord has been there for nearly 30 years and it looks like nothing has changed. The beer was good but food is limited to pork pies and pasties...More
