    We had a good look around the area trying to find somewhere to eat and followed the brown sign to here. The roads were very narrow but well worth it when served excellent food in a warm and traditional environment. Well worth a visit.

    Ring the pub landline, someone will come and meet you. A rough arrival time is helpful.
