I stayed on the campsite for a few days and ate in the pub on a couple of occasions. The staff and service were excellent, as was the food. Really good value too. Can't wait to be back next year.

Our selection of hot meals includes pub classics as well as a constantly changing selection of specials. We have a range of specially selected wines along with cask ales and a choice of soft drinks, tea and coffee.
