Our tour group stopped here for an excellent cream tea with scones, jam and Devonshire cream. The cram is really more like butter but we can diet when we get home,

We went for a spontaneous lunch for two. My husband had sausage and mash and I had a jacket potato with filling and generous salad. My husband had apple crumble for desert. Enjoyable fresh food with friendly helpful service. Pleasant outside seating area overlooking the river. Great for small groups and Families too. Lots of choice including a specials board.

Lovely setting. Clean and appealing , lovely fresh roses on the table. The staff were excellent. I had mushroom omelette . This was excellent. It came with salad and coleslaw which was nice. The meal was spoiled by hard inedible chips. I suggest they find a new supplier for their frozen chips. Another of our party had fish and chips... More
