What a great pub, terrific food , great atmosphere very well run. It's warm and cosy just what you need to cheer yourself up on a cold winter day (or night!). Diffinatly a destination you must try, won't be dissatisfied, and dog friendly which is very hard to find nowadays. Had several fantastic meals recently well done to all who...

The most recent trip was at New Years Eve running in to New Years Day. There were 6 friends and we had an amazing time. It was perfect, and we had...

We stayed here for one night en route from Brighton to Manchester for Christmas. It was a perfect place to stop off. We got a lovely warm welcome from Lisa and had a comfortable, warm room. Many places say they are dog friendly but it's rather grudging. Here they really love dogs and ours was made to feel at home....

Had a lovely meal here yesterday which I really couldn't fault. Great service from start to finish. We travelled from Suffolk to meet family from Sheffield, Dorset and Oxfordshire and it was certainly worth it. Food was spot on! Can't wait to go back next year.

Quick check-in, comfortable room and bed, good amenities including good choice of hot drinks in the room. The bathroom was large, lovely toiletries. Despite the room facing the main road there wasn't much traffic so it was not a problem. We slept very well, and breakfast the next morning was lovely and plentiful.

Its a great place. Service is brilliant and the bed we had (Room 3) was soooo comfy. Also if you have a dog this place has more dogs in it than anywhere I have been to for ages - brilliant. Food is excellent; breakfast especially.

Just got back from a wonderful three days away in this beautiful cosy country pub. Our room was clean and comfortable with a spacious en suite.

We stayed locally & visited the pub in both Fri evening & Sunday lunchtime - they couldn't do enough for us. The service was so good, and the food was brilliant in both occasions. Thank you very much, wish we lived nearer!

Ate lunch here on a miserable Autumn Saturday in November. The pub is cosy and has a lovely log burning stove. All the staff are friendly and helpful. We ate some some of the best steak and horseradish sandwiches I've ever had - perfectly cooked and very tasty. The goats cheese tart and soup were also delicious. A lovely place...

We had yet another lovely dinner here last week. The staff are always welcoming and the service was excellent AGAIN ! We had the steak and seabass, both were cooked exactly how we asked and came with lovely vegetables, which is rare nowadays as you often have to order these as a side dish. Great choice of food and wine...
