Just visited for Sunday lunch all the staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was excellent, tasty , well presented and piping hot. What more could you need. We had two courses at £13.95 , could have three courses for £16.95. Would definitely recommend.

Very enjoyable evening at the Fortescue. Very nice traditional village pub. Meal was excellent. Pork Medallions with the peppercorn sauce was superb. Really good service by the staff. Pleasant background singer and pianist. No complaints. Very positive experience.
