Popped in following a recommendation. Busy Friday evening. We took our Boxer dog and sat in the corner of the bar. Locals were friendly and welcoming. Food was freshly cooked and tasty. Parking a bit tight.

Nice country pub. Five for lunch and we had three ploughmans. Two traditional cheese and one baked ham. Skate wing and vegetable assortment and a pasta dish. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Great quality and very good portion sizes all freshly prepared.

Definitely a pit stop for dogwalkers. Beautifully cool inside on a hot afternoon when visiting recently. Crowded on the outside, but plenty of room and tables in the bar.
