Fantastic location and the entrance/garden is welcoming. Large car park. A bit dated inside and could probably do with a toilet refurb. But this is a nice friendly village pub, full of character. Menu not too large or fussy, simple honest food. I opted for...More

Came here for lunch as a change to a previous meal we had had in the hotel. Menu choice is fine and our meals were good too. Zero atmosphere as there not many in. Also it was quite cold as there was rain all day....More

Good range of food, comfortable surroundings, good service, could get a bit noisy perhaps if football on TV was exciting!

We visited on a Wednesday night which was quiz night. We ordered a range of dishes from the menu which contained a range of standard pub dishes. The food was ok, but we found it very oily. The atmosphere was good and staff friendly.

A traditional family-friendly pub which is also our village "local". We welcome all. The pub is in a converted police station and courtroom, hence the name. There are still abrs over 2 small windows in the main bar as these were the old police cells. Wide range of well-kept, local beers and ciders plus draft lagers. Food is mainly locally sourced and cooked to order. Live music events throughout the year. Major sports events are shown on the wide screen TV
