Good pub food and an incredibly friendly welcome. Not a gastro pub but a local pub with good homemade food (very good quality homemade chicken nuggets on the children's menu a welcome suprise). Good value and the proprietors were lovely.

Have visited many times over the past two years and always find the hospitality and food to be of a very high standard. The food is wonderfully prepared and presented using fresh local ingredients. There is a well stocked bar and the the owners are friendly and will go out of their way to ensure that you enjoy your visit - the very best gastro-pub in the region!
