The pub was nice and the survive was good. But the food was really average, standard pub food but really pricey and not worth it

Lovely quaint pub, very clean and offer great food. We both had the beef burger which was delicious and perfectly cooked. The service was great and atmosphere friendly. We had a lovely Saturday evening meal here. Would definitely recommend and return.

There was certainly a vegetarian option on the evening menu and a vege breakfast on offer. I am sure there will be an option but it may not be an extensive choice ....the food was delicious!
