Had a few pints and a good lunch as usual but when I said the bill was too cheap (the food price was missing) the manager/owner? didn't bother to say thank you and just made the excellent barmaid feel guilty about the error. Not the first time it's happened so I will definitely not do the right thing again and...

Excellent faultless food, local pork chops with juicy fat and lambs liver stack. Fab breakfast too, with the works and chunky toast. Dogs very welcome throughout. The best pub in the village in terms of atmosphere too.

Had a lovely meal whilst staying nearby, lamb shank on mash potato was really nice and so was the meat and potato pie. Staff were very nice & friendly and a lovely warm fire to sit in front of. Would definitely recommend it.

Used the pub as a meeting point for our short walking break. Found a table in the corner and drew a couple of extra chairs up under the uneasy eye of the waiter. Had a couple of beers each. Stacked our empties up in stacks of two to aid collection for the waiter to shout 'can you not stack these...
