We stayed here for two nights with friends. We ate in the restaurant both nights, great selection of food, so much to choose from. The meals were fantastic. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Decided we needed a country pub lunch today, so glad we did. Pies were very tasty with fresh vegetables, tasty jus and 'proper chips'. Don't mind paying a little extra for quality food well presented. Staff are welcoming and efficient and considering the number of...More
