After getting lost and walking miles we passed this restaurant. Great real ale. Food amazing and we even got a lift back from one of the staff. Can't give 10 stars as 5 are only available. Quality all day long.

Stayed here again recently as we love the place and always have a very good meal. Fresh and in season food always a winner with us and many others considering how busy they were.
